We do the same. If you are looking to differentiate bugs that have been
looked at vs those that are truly NEW, we use the priority. All new bugs
come in with a priority of P5 - None and once they are reviewed, are
moved to a P0 - P4. They are left in the NEW state however, until they
are being worked on, then they are ASSIGNED.
