I completely agree and there may be krazy issues that should be fixed
_before_ the release - for example dpointerness and maybe  some others. 

I also don't think this helps getting developers into fixing bugs, those
that were looking at the ebn and fixing krazy issues might as well just
use the commandline tool. IMHO there's a reason these people don't work
on real bugs but krazy stuff (in my case the factor is time, if I only
have some 30 minutes I rather fix a bunch of krazies instead of starting
something which I can't finish).


Chess tonight.
