The “Your issues” list is very helpful and works well for me.  This bug
is still open and assigned to me (and opened in my web browser,
incidentally), so I don’t fear I’ll forget it.  This new keyword would
IMO be redundant with existing fields (status:open + version:2.7).

(The once-existing 26backport was entirely different if I recall
correctly, it was used to tag 3.x features to be added to 2.x.)
