The problem is really the RESOLVED connotation and the hiding that goes
along with that on searches, etc.

The LATER status itself can be useful when used properly (more as
"ASSIGNED LATER"). In the lack of that some bigger teams might need to
think of other methods to get things meant for LATER out of main views
of huge bug lists.

In my case, I want to have a "gnome" saved search that shows all OPEN
(non-LATER) bugs directly assigned to gnome, and another saved search
that shows those where gnome@ is merely in CC, or anything marked as
LATER. Though that might not be achievable, so three saved searches
really.
More useful might be a date field upon which it will simply
automatically re-open. Maybe something one is unable to set more than 30
or so days into the future.
