  That's true, but old bugs that are too vague, unreproducible, and/or
probably fixed clutter up the bug list (which means it's hard for users
or developers to find real bugs in the package).  Purging them from time
to time is a good idea IMO...if anyone cares they are free to reopen
them with more information or file a new bug.
