Ok.. I've moved a whole bunch of bugs over from walter to nobody.  The current
counts (ignoring the tiny handful of other logins that own a bug):

  | login_name               | bug_status | count(*) |
  | | ASSIGNED   |        1 |
  | | NEW        |      125 |
  | | REOPENED   |       54 |
  |     | ASSIGNED   |        8 |
  |     | NEW        |      996 |
  |     | REOPENED   |       20 |

I should have taken notes, but the primary reasons for moving a bug over to
nobody was that it had never been commented on by walter.  Any bug that has the
'patch' keyword was left assigned to walter.

Walter, of those 180 bugs, I expect that most of them you are NOT actively
working on, so it'd be nice if you would move more back to
 Ok, even nicer if they were just fixed, but one step at a time. :)

Also of note, I didn't care about the severity of the bugs when moving them, so
there's regressions, blockers, etc over in the nobody bucket.  Unfortunate that
they're not assigned, but it reflects reality far better this way.
