Max and I were discussing the other side of this coin the other day on
IRC. He was saying that there were previously a lot more bug reports
(around 1.0 the timeframe?), which initially spurred instigation of
the tight issue tracker guidelines. If bug reports have slowed up a
bit, perhaps the language on the tracker page should be changed to be
more allowing of obvious reports going straight into the tracker?
In any case, I'm +1 on David's suggestion.
