No.. I think that reporters should include the priority, and then every
developer would have the ability to change the bug priority. This follows
the `spirit' of the current bug system, that has worked very well...
Besides... most of the time, reports are made by other developers... And
the priority assigned by the reporter will most of the times be the right
Mmm... Perhaps priorityless bugs should be assigned `high' priority, and
then the maintainer will be able to lower it... Maybe...
