I'd like you to take that bug (1797) off your list again.  It's less
critical now than it was for the hamm upgrade, and it's still just as
hard to fix.

These bugs should be fixed.  (I'll reset the severity of 20401 to
important.)  I plan to do this before the end of the freeze.

This is an X bug, I think.  I'll reassign it.

This bug should not be important.
