The current bugzilla install is falling apart.  It needs to be completely 
redone on a new machine.  There is some hope that the spamassassin people 
might help with this, since they are bugzilla experts.  But we also need 
to have a new machine for it.

In short, this is a known problem, but it is not going to be solved 
quickly because it is complicated.

As far as NEEDINFO, we can add a NEEDINFO keywork if you want.  That would 
get almost the same effect.

I have the rights to do this.  I'll try to get to it soon.

This is rather difficult to do in bugzilla, I believe.
