It would be nice to know the version, yes, but I'm more looking for 
things like 'to what does this bug apply'? That a bug was reported 
against 2.0.1 is completely irrelevant if it's a new bug which has
lurked for years. As it is, with the poor filtering and display options
available through SF, I can't say 'show me all outstanding 2.1.x bugs'.

Given the nastiness of working with the trackers, perhaps this isn't 
a good idea after all. I don't see how we can get the FRs out of the bug 
tracker, tho.

(I think I'm just spoilt having Richard sitting in the same office. I can
ask him to make our roundup do what we want, assuming I can't do it myself...)
