	Son instead of being annoye once by a mass of bug reports,
 people can be annoyed periodically at a rapid frequency as their
 packages at different priorities are hit?

	I fail to see how breaking up a mass bug filing artificially
 in any way ameliorates any offence the mass filing may cause. Indeed,
 if you think that this works, I'll merely write up  a scriupt that
 delays X units of time to file mass bug reports -- say, evey 6 hours
 or so, some bugs shall be sent.

	The spirit, not the letter, of the objections to mass bug
 filing ought to be looked at.

 Build a system that even a fool can use and only a fool will want to
 use it.
