perhaps a "needshelp" keyword?  for stuff that either a) we can't figure out
how to fix/reproduce, or b) feature requests that we don't have the time or
desire to implement, but would be willing to include.

easy-fix sounds like a nice idea in theory, but i agree that easy-fix items
tend to get fixed pretty quickly by one of us.  hell, i know i usually
can't resist the instant gratification of a quick fix.

bugzilla's keywords system is pretty cool IMHO; we should make use of it if
we can.
