I would love to see a bugzilla feature that would entirely disable
commenting on closed bugs like on archlinux's bugtracking system
That might possibly need "Request reopen" button of somesort, or we
could just always require people to open new bugs
Often people just wish to argue about the closing status, after the bug
has been resolved...
