bugzilla s***s at filtering. I just refer to Thomas's mail about all the 
issues we have in bugzilla (for KWin) because it's not filtered and cannot be 
moderated. It's just the wrong tool for user support and I understand 
everybody who does not want to do usersupport through bugzilla.

(one of my favorite moderation feature is "bug confirmed by popular vote" - 
great thing to destroy the "NEW" state)
