Using the blocker flag, whether issues are considered critical blocker 
or not, is the one of the easiest ways to determine specific 
items/changes included in a release by querying BZ based on the blocker 
flag. Larger considerations/changes, like build changes and updates to 
external sources/libraries, aren't tagged this way, but they could be -- 
for easier record keeping.
