I think that `difficult' shouldn't be a `severity', it's orthogonal to
It could be added a new field `state'. `State:' would be one of:
`forwarded', `difficult', `research' and `new'.
Reported bugs would be automatically given the `new' state, and the
number of packages in the `new' state would indicate weather the
maintainer is working or not =).
