Glen Morris's suggestion above attaches a specific version to the tag
(possibly in a non-standard fashion).  I think a pending flags is just
fine, but it needs to be attached to a version number somehow.
Otherwise it is inevitable that a report with the pending tag will
remain "pending" at the time of the next release, with no one possibly
realizing that it was meant for that release, and not the one
succeeding.
