Sorry, short addendum -- Those who do take a slightly more aggressive
approach than we've done previously, though, will want to come up with
a good explanation to use in the bug reports so that they don't get
skewered like the bugsquad did by JWZ when we closed out Gnome 1.x
bugs.  Fear of such backlash is probably one of the main reasons we
didn't continue any aggressiveness at closing out old
more-likely-to-be-useless-than-not bugs, though I think our lack of
backbone (and I'm probably more to blame than anyone) has slowed us
down.  Maybe we could hide behind 'Mozilla's doing it too' now, as
pointed out in my blog post.  ;-)

Anyway, enough of my rambling...
