I was thinking to look at the oldest bugs first hoping that most of those
could be closed out because they can not be reproduced in the newer
Maybe the easiest for now would be to one of us start from the top while the
other starts at the bottom or one takes the bugs with even bug numbers while
the other one looks at the odd ones.  I'm OK with any approach.

Here is a question that came up yesterday when I looked at a (randomly
selected) bug (
One could argue that the reported bug is a feature which doesn't need to be
addressed.  How should bugs like this be handled?  Should we merely state
that the behavior has been confirmed and leave it up to the developer to
decide what should be done?
