I think Martin is right that someone needs to take the lead and do a
complete review of how issues are handled. That way we can do a change
in one big batch to something that works better for Python.

I have always planned to take the lead on this, but it will have to
wait until probably Python 3.0 is out the door. If someone else wants
to go through and really look at how we handle issues and propose a
new schema that's fine by me.
