Well, some indication of how many users this affects may be useful when 
looking at issues to work on.

Launchpad has a button for "this affects me" and you can see how many 
users are affected by an issue (or have declared that at least). Not 
sure if this sends you email, but I'm pretty sure it is different to 
subscribing to an issue - which is nice. Sometimes I care about an issue 
but can neither fix it myself nor want to receive every email from the 
discussion on the issue tracker.

May you do good and not evil
May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others
May you share freely, never taking more than you give.
