Hmm, it's a good idea though - it would be nice if it happened. I
would like to be able to click on a web page to say "yeah, this is
happening to me too".
If you stored dates, you could track it with time, too, which might be
a good indication taht some of the really ancient bug reports could
indeed be closed.
