Yes.  For example, I see that the "Regular Expressions" category is
auto-assigned to effbot.

That would be fine by me, provided he asks for it (it's a commitment,
despite that developers routinely vanish for years at a time <wink>).

> and add a category for the subprocess system?

That one's harder to call.  Once a category is added, it can never be
removed.  So I'd wait on that to see whether enough reports came in
against subprocess to justify it.  Since it's unlikely that an
original reporter will assign "the right" category to begin with, and
the original submission is the only time at which auto-assignment has
an effect, the major value in all this would be achieved simply by
having a subprocess expert with commit privileges.
