And how about a nice header for -done which is something to the effect
of 'mark as spam & archive now & prevent replies etc unless reopened',
or let us tag bugs as 'spam' (which would also be an alias for close)
and on the bug summary pages instead of all the spam bugs on package
pages (mainly 'general' i'd say) it'd appear in it's own little
section, and can autoarchive in 28 days without mixing with other
