That sounds great, and like something there's no way anyone's going to
have time to do.  If we had time to classify any significant number of
bugs that way, we would have been able to resolve them, particularly the
easy ones.  :)

It takes a lot of effort to maintain that level of metadata.  We struggle
with keeping up with the basic "fixed" or "not fixed" bug metadata.
