Well, taking over the attention of devs for tracked bugs isn't helping
much indeed.  Closing old/nonsense/fixed/… bugs is good tho.

If someone wants to hack around, say xfwm4, he will be able to find
wishlists and so on the bugzilla.  Those kind of bugs can live there for
years as long as they seem valid.  However if they are no more valid, it
can only be checked by anyone if the component didn't change critically,
otherwise it is left to the dev.  Asking for the validity of wishlists
is mostly annoying in that case.
