+1 on the STATUS file. Much easier to provide a short summary, to see
*who* voted *which* way, and it is versioned. I can open the file, zip
through and add a dozen votes, commit, and be done. Changing a dozen
issues is *significantly* harder. (IZ isn't all that hard, but compared to
a file edit?)

Most developers are signed up for commit email, but a relative few are
signed up on the issues@ mailing list. From an awareness standpoint, the
file is better. Especially for people who are lurking/observing.
