This is interesting. I was chatting with an extremely on the ball Ubuntu
dev in #launchpad the other day (and in fact someone on #ubuntu-bugs
earlier today) about stuff like this. I do think that Ubuntu's bugzilla
is a bit too "friendly" at the moment and is going to be crushed under
the weight of "fix anything/everything" reports. Perhaps this discussion
would be better off on one of the launchpad lists though (which still
aren't on GMANE - http://www.gmane.org/ : )
