According to the bug severities, yes.  As I said before, see "minor" and
"wishlist".

When I think "unusable", I thing of things like:
1) failure of an executable to resolve symbols at load time;
2) a bug inside a binary that causes it to segfault under most
   circumstances;
3) driver bugs in the XFree86 server that lock up your box or make the
   screen unreadable;

I don't think of shell scripts that the packaging system allows the user
the freedom to edit.
