If Bugzilla supports that then I can alter the regex to allow it, but honestly 
my thinking is that "obviously" the fix would be in whatever trunk is at the 
time, and therefore this is more for the purposes of the stable branch.

That reminds me though, I sometimes will CCBUG on the backport and only use 
the BUG keyword on the trunk commit. Right now I have the code so that the 
FIXED-IN keyword only works on the bugs that are actually closed, which 
wouldn't support that workflow.

Is it worth it to relax that restriction and accept occasional mis-taggings?
