Well, the severity of a bug, from a user POV, makes no guarantee on
how serious the maintainer takes it, nor whether they will actually
fix it. Admittely some users get comfort from being able to set a
priority, in much the same way that some maintainers do. It still
takes separate effort to turn severity into "dealt with promptly"
or "considered important" or "I'll fix this one".
