And here I was wondering exactly what to put in that field when
submitting bug reports...

Also, what do the other severities mean? It would be nice to set down
some definitions, like minor = "causes inconvenience but has easy
workaround", major = "causes language feature to be unusable as
advertised" (rather than major = "I think this is important and I want
it fixed NAOW!"), etc..

What about bugs filed against specific releases? Or we don't have those
kinds of bugs / we don't have the resources to keep track of them?

Don't drink and derive. Alcohol and algebra don't mix.
