I agree.

We don't have to call it "vote"; a second-tier nosy list would probably
the most useful thing for both sides:

a button [This affects me]

meaning "please count me amoung those who like to see it fixed and
send me an email when the issue is closed"

But I think that effort may be better spent on some of the existing
98 open issues in the meta-tracker here: http://psf.upfronthosting.co.za/
unless this feature is contributed.
