I have drifted more your direction in this. I think it would be good
to separate the modules, however I am less and less convinced that
someone filing a bug report can give an accurate enough assessment to
even trigger the module tag vs. the the core tag.

This may be another good question for Laura if she has some experience
with the "lay person's" bug reports.

I'm not strongly positioned either way.

I am deeply mired in an attempt at departure from gainful employment.
I can't give a lot of attention to this for at least another month.

One issue with gnats that I was looking at was getting it to work
as a tracking system for several distinct projects that Brian is
also involved in and that hyperreal offers services to. Perhaps the
newer version of gnats is capable of doing that. The old one
certainly wasn't. This may be a moot issue by now.
