That's a good point, but if we put a link to the JIRA filter for 
newcomers on the newcomer Wiki page it shouldn't be too bad...

When entering a JIRA bug, the checkboxes are very easy to see and easier 
to select than components, so that's a plus.  That and it is more 
accurate, IMHO.

The question I have, is how hard it is to convert bugs with Newcomer 
component to bugs with the Newcomer checkbox...
