+1, and if you want to add language to this effect to
project_issues.html, I certainly wouldn't argue. (I might even clap.)

Brane points out that using a state, "UNCONFIRMED", would technically
be better than using a milestone. True, but on other hand, I sort by
milestone (do others as well?) and seeing all the "---" issues bunched
up front is very handy...
