Do you realize how many checkboxes this would involve? Times the number 
of product if you want it per-product.

Why is status transition so important compared to other bug fields? What 
if I'm only interested in bugs marked blocker or critical, or with 
priority P1 and P2 only, etc...? This looks insane to me.

Maybe should you let your email client tag and filter incoming bugmails 
rather than making the email prefs UI overcomplicated.

In my proposed patch, I'm only talking about open vs closed bugs, not 
each step between.
