Yeah, but the status quo sucks so I think it is fine to deviate.  =)

I agree with Neal; let's go ahead and change how things are done now and if
it becomes an issue we can change it.  But I suspect if we help make it easy
to search for issues that are in a specific state it will not only let us
keep on top of things that need to be dealt with in a specific way (e.g.,
patch reviews), but also lets us get people to help us more in terms of
triaging bugs.  Bug days, for instance, could have total newbies look at
'open' bugs to help us flag them properly instead of having to go through
existing bugs and try to find easy ones to deal with.  Better granularity
(w/o being to restrictive) should be a good thing in this respect.
