I believe Robert's point is that once a bug is filled on an application,
it is the application's maintainer's obligation to file any additional bugs
that may be needes (Please let me know, if I understand it incorrectly, Robert).

That said, I tend to agree that filing against both all applications and modules
may be preferable, since we want as many packages as possible to support Python 3.
