14 days till bug horizon

Hmpf, I sent the previous announcement before it was quite finished.
Here is the list of bugs I meant to append.

This is the current list of bugs that are headed for the horizon.
I generated it from the bugscan report of Mar 12 15:08, and subtracted
the bugs that were fixed by uploads I installed today.

Total number of bugs listed: 161

Explanation for tags:
  * [FIX]: describes a simple method to deal with the bug.
  * [STRATEGY]: describes a possible approach for fixing the bug.
  * [HELP]: help is needed to fix this bug.
