Absolutely. The 'help' tag can only really be useful if it's widely
known which bugs are tagged with it. Unfortunately it's not quite as
easy as I thought to harvest them automatically using the LDAP interface
to the BTS, as it doesn't seem to allow searching on tags. I'll have to
handle it more directly on master.

Would some lists of bugs with other tags set be helpful? I'm thinking of
unreproducible, security, and perhaps moreinfo.
