  Would it be possible to add a slightly less final version of this tag?
  "wontfixsoon", maybe..
  I don't have any bugs that I'm never planning to fix, but there are some
which would be difficult to fix without major redesigns, and thus have a
lower priority on my list-of-things-to-do than simple-to-fix bugs.

  Also, I'm not clear on what the stable tag is meant for.  Should any bug
pertaining only to the version in "stable" be flagged with it, or only
