Of the 50 bugs >= 2.8, 42 would thus be considered prioritized and
we'd only have eight to talk about.  Those have a wide enough spread
of opinions that we should discuss why.

We might want to conduct a new ballot with any bugs remaining numbered
1990 and above (1990-2008 appear on the spreadsheet, but were not on
the original ballot so some people didn't comment).  We're up to 2078
so the bug filing has definitely continued, although only 31 of those
additional 70 have not yet been closed so we're also knocking them
off as we can.
