Subject Re: Add Priority: Normal for issue tracker

Perhaps I should not have been so soft on this idea. I really don't see 
any advantage big enough in any of the suggestions for me to consider it 
worth getting used to a new setup. Instead, I would encourage us to live 
with what we have and find some more important issues to solve.

Committers should feel free to set the priority of an issue if they feel 
that the default middle priority level is incorrect. We also effectively 
express priority by the placement of an issue in a specific milestone.
