A non-sponsored new/old (casual/hippie) contributor would try to search
among unassigned issues, while managers/developers/committers whose $dayjob
allows them to work on ACS fulltime will tend to do 'cookie lickin' which
is understandable and will assure that someone gets the privilege to work
on it and their employers will make sure the task would be done :)

I would prefer an environment where every contributor (sponsored or
otherwise) would assign the tickets themselves, and unassign if they cannot
do it or don't have time/resources for it.

We've already seen several occasions where someone assigns an issue to
someone and we see cycle of assignments because the "assigner" had no clue
about the issue or did not really know who would could really resolve the
issue. Just saying.
