Sounds like a good idea, eg to help motivate maintainers fix
Submit a bug to the BTS with severity: praise?????
[ when are you going to fix the 10 bugs against your package? oh,
sorry they are praise bugs ;-) ]
Or, redesign the BTS so it can better handle the growing number of
applications (WNPP,praise tracking,etc) (eg fields specific to each
application, instead of using the title for this purpose)?
Or an alternative I haven't specified.
