With 3.4 we proposed each release blocker on the list, in its own
thread, right?  But it is not going the be much better if we start
with 90 new threads.

It looks like all the proposed release blockers are marked confirmed.
A few of them pre-date AOO 3.4, but most are more recent.

But with a further look I see some were incorrectly marked
"CONFIRMED".  I think some volunteers when they first started set that
field after trying to confirm a defect, without understanding that
this state should only set if the confirmation test was successful.
So we need to review the comments on each bug to see which ones are
actually reproduced.    I'll try to clean up a few tonight while I
watch TV.

Also, we probably need to prioritize.  For example, a "shallow crash"
(a crash in a common. top-level operation) is higher priority than a
crash that only occurs with a specific malformed document.
