Sounds like a nice idea, but I doubt that it will work out.
There are already plenty of tools to prioritize bugs, but people often
don't even set importance or severity.

We could try something different, let the core contributors weekly
curate bugs.

I'll start with a bunch of core.atomic improvements.

https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12891 - add atomicInc and
atomicDec to core.atomic
https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14117 - core.atomic should be @safe

That one is a bit harder, because it involves dmd and druntime, but it's
a huge improvement, implementation help guaranteed.

https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13713 - core.atomic should use
compiler intrinsics
