Where do you draw the line between "wontfix" and "notabug"?
A feature request that cannot be implemented without changing
standard Unix semantics could be seen as either category.
A feature request that has been rejected upstream as inappropriate
could also be seen as either category.
In other cases, a bug seen by the maintainer as "notabug" might really
be a bug, but the solution given by the submitter is inappropriate -
it might be a matter of using lateral thinking in order to work out
what the problem really is and to solve it.
Even if a user is a complete idiot and misuses the application, maybe
that is an indication of poor documentation or not-obvious/overly
complicated program design (wontfix) as opposed to being a false bug
 For example I have had a bug report telling me a program should
change the environment of the calling process. #345443.
