This is a separate issue, which you do not seem to know about.

It's already been discussed that the severity of a bug is different than the
RCness of it.  I have some faint idea of how to fix this in the bts, and I am
certain Anthony does at well.  However, now is not the time to implement it,
as the release is inniment(sp).

To which group are you attempting to have this analogy used against?  Those
who were there first, or those doing the reinventing?
