This is still debatable - some bugs are more serious than others.  Many are
requests for enhancements: these should be exempt from the 12 months limit.

I think we should take a look at the RedHat 4.0 install disks - they already
have a nice working initrd setup, all SCSI drivers as modules, etc.  As far
as I can tell, all their (RH) stuff is GPLed - we could even use some of it.
