Absolutely.  All the points made thus far have been excellent, and the system
should accomodate such filtering.  I am adament about wanting a public
resource, though, where everyone can find out what has been addressed.  I'm
finding a bunch of limitations with the current WWW interface however so I'm
looking at redoing a *lot* of it (separate scripts for separate functions, for
example), and that requires learning how gnats works.  Ugh.  But, it's a high
personal priority at this point, and having a bug system based on gnats seems a
smarter option than building our own.
