Well, we could manage the issues that way.   But, imo, the dashboard  
is much more useful as tactical display as to what is going to be  
done for what version.  This informs users what is coming down the  

If we switch to versions that the reporter would like to see the fix  
several things will happen.  It is likely that the reporter will mark  
the next version as the version to fix.  It is also possible that it  
would not get fixed for that version.  When this occurs, we would  
have to ask all the reports to update their wish list.  Also, the  
dashboard would then become a display of wish lists with no clear  
visibility as to what will get released when.

The best way that a reporter can indicate his/her opinion on when it  
should get fixed is via priority.

I think that there is a wiki page somewhere...
