This seemed to meet with general approval although some people
objected to me blathering on about all the edge cases.

This turned out to be difficult because of the Mail-Followup-To which
the list server was setting.  This seems now to be fixed.  So we can
go ahead.

Accordingly I have edited the tech-ctte webpage to ask people
referring a message to the TC to file a new bug rather than reassign
an existing one.

We should continue to use the bug numbers we are familiar with for
existing issues.
