See the below newsgroup message. What do people think of the idea of a 
patch (or incremental change) to convert all instances of "bug" etc. to 
[% _bug %], [% _Bug %], [% _bugs %] etc.?

Would this just be a maintainability headache for the templates, or 
would it allow people to make a much-requested customisation without the 
need for custom templates and hassle?

I would very much like to see all references to "bug" configurable.
The main reason being an enhancement request is not a bug, and to
refer to an ehancement as a bug merely confuses the [non-techinical]
end-users I am working with.
