nothing easier than using the "closed for new reports" checkbox in
bugz. theoretically ...

yeah, see also my "maintenance coverage" mail from may 20th. :}
putting some serious work into that and the "pinging system" would be
*way* more effective than admitting defeat and going for tabula raza
(every few years from now on, because that's what is gonna happen).
i don't buy into this "library" idea, either. it's just a clever way to
get rid of the backlog. anybody trying to actually use it would be
confronted with a load of practical problems.
