I thought the same thing at first, but then it seems rather clear from
Chris' description, in fact: "Those which are non-trivial but which can
reasonably be wrapped up in a few months' work". The easyfix keyword is,
I believe, intended for issues which *are* trivial and would require
much less than 'a few months' work'.
