Obviously I assume this is still a "to taste" thing, because when you're packaging something, and you find something upstream have done which makes sense for them, but not for gentoo, you're inclined to go "oh, right", and just side-step that, without such thought as to file a bug in the process. So obviously not *all* workarounds can have useful bugs filed for them. Unless I'm supposed to see the bug before I ship the code, and file a bug in gentoo, ship the ebuild with the workaround, and then close the bug, even though the bug never existed from any users perspective. So its just a matter of more clearly defining the scopes of workarounds were talking about here.
