OK, so, follow-up on this:

Matej sent the draft to the devel list, where it died a quiet death. :)
Which is actually fine by me, since all we needed to hear from devs is
that it's not going to *hurt* them. And no-one complained.

So I reckon we should just go ahead and start setting priority /
severity, then see where we are in a few weeks, or at the end of F12
cycle. But we need to pick either the Williamson / Beland Method
(triagers set both priority / severity), or the Cepl Method (triagers
set severity only). I don't really mind, I can go with either system.
Does anyone have a strong opinion either way? Votes? Thanks, guys!
