Er, why -ctte and the bug only? My response is germane to more than these
groups. In fact, this really doesn't have any particular bearing on the bug,
nor the ctte.

Severity should not be changed. It is well defined, as to what it does.
However, maybe a second field, that the maintainer has full control over, that
signifies the order in which he is looking at bugs, or something.
This could be added somewhat easy. It'd most likely be the first new field
added to the .status file, since like forever.
