I am a very busy (but happy runrev user) and I do notice that there is tons
of traffic on this list but find nearly all of it important and/or
interesting including info that may lead to a  bug report. So I vote that it
be ok for people to discuss bugs on the list at least enough so we can say
"yes it's a bug" and tell them the link for the latest bugzilla.
