I would use it as a one line answer to bug reports on the mailing
list... I would prefer users to always post on the mailing list first,
and if it looks like a real bug, a developer would ask the user to fill
a bug report.
That might work. As a case study of something to avoid: I know at least
three persistent bugs in the firefox browser I'm using and I thought
