just in case anyone else was wondering too... yeah, INVALID covers 
NOTABUG.  essentially INVALID works for reports that aren't actually 
bugs, or reports that are symptoms of bugs in other software (something 
we especially see somewhat frequently).  note that in the case of a bug 
report filed on a bug that is fixed in a later version, you'd either use 
DUPLICATE (if it was reported before), or WORKSFORME (if not).  WONTFIX 
should be used in cases where it is indeed a bug (or perhaps just 
undesired behavior), but you've decided not to fix it because it would, 
for example, break other things, or require a lengthy redesign that's 
not worth the effort.  note that if you don't want to fix a bug because 
you're lazy, leave it open and add the "helpwanted" keyword to the bug.

if i have time sometime, i might add a NOTABUG resolution, though i need 
to check and make sure i'm doing it properly, which might be 
non-trivial, so don't hold your breath ^_~.
