And I want a pony¹.

OpenID might help, although how hard _is_ it to register for an account
the first time you file a bug? $DEITY, what kind of attention-span do
you people have? If you can't sit still for that long, is there any
reason to believe you'll be able to file a coherent bug report?

The other thing that helps is to make bug-tracking systems work
together. We already have links to upstream bugs in our bugzilla,
although we haven't quite automated the 'push this bug, in its entirety,
to upstream bugzilla' step. We probably should.

¹ I don't really. I want _fewer_ ponies. Does anyone want to buy a pony?
  I'm thinking of putting them on ebay.... three ponies, one rider as a
  single lot. What is it with ponies?
