The existing help tag is really for bugs for which the maintainer needs
or wants help; these are basically a superset of entry-point, and bugs
which are more difficult than it would be reasonable for a new
contributor to help.

I suppose it would be reasonable for bugs which are tagged entry-point
to also be tagged help, but I'm not going to mandate that.

The game of science is, in principle, without end. He who decides one
day that scientific statements do not call for any further test, and
that they can be regarded as finally verified, retires from the game.
