Yeah, we have several proposals. The good thing is that BZ aliases
aren't exclusive, a bug can have as many as you like. Heck, we could add
all the proposals as aliases to the F18 bugs, even. Whatever floats your
boat. =)

I don't mind doing that, but a (slightly) less radical plan would be to
add all the proposals as aliases to the F19 bugs and see how people like
'em. That wouldn't be too difficult, it'd only take someone maybe an
hour to go and unearth all the proposals and edit the bugs. Anyone want
a ticket to do it?
