IMSO (S stands for "Sorry"), the main point is less to fix new bugs
than firstly to make sure people who have begun fixing a bug actually
end up having fixed said bug. That's not about priority, that's about
not losing patches, no matter how poorly coded or documented or
relevant they may be.

One thing we (meaning, a dedicated and reliable BugMeister...) could
do to make sure patches don't go ignored, is mark issues as "Started"
whenever a patch is posted and not applied.
