Which is exactly the reason I completely disagree with Gerv, both for
attachments and dependencies, because those are both VERY frequently used.
I get at least new bug notification every two or three days where someone
files a bug and immediately attaches a patch to it.  That's two bugmails
when I could have just gotten one.  We frequently have a need for metabugs
(though it's probably overused, it's a fact of life) and dependencies on
the enter_bug page makes that a lot easier, too.

I want 112373 to stay in.  Although I do think it would have better waited
until process/post got combined.

141175 is a dupe of 81642.  81642 now has a corporate sponsor so it'll
happen sooner than we think.
