 So you suggest that automated tools trawl all the BZ comments looking
for "works for me" comments? ... and what do people do who are just
testing the new package but had no problem with the old one, pick a BZ
at random? Open a new "the old one worked for me BZ" which we add to the
update just so people can say the new one works.
 And this is _better_ than the simple karma system?
