In the past you've said that you would address these sorts of issues  
before suggesting wider use. You're now suggesting wider use of the  
tool but the issues still remain.  I think it's reasonable to make  
people are aware of the problems.  I also think it's completely  
reasonable to request that known issues that result in a mess being  
made in Bugzilla and the SVN history are addressed as soon as possible.
