Which is always the problem with easy-fix- it's a judgement call, and I
know of few things that irritate maintainers more than someone who has
never looked at the code saying something is easy-fix when it is
actually a total PITA. So... I use the keyword very conservatively, and
it appears no hackers do at all :/


P.S. FWIW, I have ~0 free time to remerge the gnome2.0/gnome2.1 reports,
so I'd appreciate it if someone else did that particular nearly-easy-fix
