in a sense our hands are somewhat tied; we have a policy of sticking
close to upstream Bugzilla code to avoid getting (back) into the case
where our Bugzilla is so diverged from upstream that we can no longer
track upstream updates promptly. So our Bugzilla maintainers generally
won't push changes that aren't either upstreamed or stand a good chance
of being upstreamed soon, AIUI.
