upon reading cyril's mail, i (also) thought it'd be nice if we could
require a bug number in every shlibs.local file (but possibly nothing
else!). the advantage of a bug over a description is that automated
tools can detect stale shlib.local files (ie., when their bug has been
closed for a while).
it is also with ideas like this that i regret that our policy process
won't allow for a top-down flow of recommendations. imho this would be a
nice use for it, once consensus was be reached that this is a good idea.
what's so wrong with that anyway?
