Even though the bug count has grown to serious proportions, I'd like to
thank you all for working so hard on these bugs. In particular, Ray, Igor,
and Jack have all closed multiple bugs over the last week. Very good
work. Hopefully the new bugs for the coming week will be back down to
single digits, and we'll be able to get the bug total to double digits.
