Right. One UX note though, based on similarly long lists in the Bugzilla
component fields for Fedora and RHEL: list boxes don't scale well to really
long lists of items, so such a field would ideally be based on a combo-box
with typeahead support. (We have something like that already for the nosy
list, where the typeahead support checks for Experts Index entries)
