While I agree that no software is ever free of bugs, doing a query on
something  that doesn't exist (something management types are likely
to do :-) gives this message, so the only person who will see it and care
is the PHB who signs the pay checks.

I found it in a template, the same one where you can change the term
"bug" to something else.  Glad I found it too, because I anticipate his
next complaint will be "we don't have bugs, we have errors." (Something
he's told Tech Support in the past).  But since New Feature Requests
are just "bugs" with "enhancement"severity, we can't call them all errors.
I expect the Sr. programmer will back me up on that one.
