I like the idea. Some comments:
- It could be useful not to archive done/wontfix bugs, to allow other
people to contribute ideas or motivations in the future: since the
wish has been refused but not satisfied, it seems appropriate to keep
the discussion open.
- There is a need for documenting this behaviour, should it be
accepted, and probably for documenting (and maybe discussing?) other
currently undocumented established practices that have popped up in
- It could be useful to implement a view of the wishlist bugs including
done/wontfix bugs, to explore the contributed creativity that has not
made its way into the package.
