If what we're really looking for is another way for important bugs to get the 
visibility they need, I think this is a fantastic idea.  It would serve 
pretty much the same purpose as a voting system with less work on Malone and 
without reinventing wheels etc.  If we could sort bugs by # of subscriptions, 
and if we could get the word out that you improve a bug's visibility by 
subscribing to it (and if subscriptions could move appropriately when a bug 
is duped), we have a very useful improvement.
