[webkit-dev] 194 bugs in pending-commit

IIRC, Mozilla's bugzilla can "hide" obsolete patches (?). If so, why can not
webkit's bugzilla?

I actually do not like the way the review flags are cleared today only in
order to make the tools and pending-xxx pages happier. IMO the review flags
give much about the history of the bug. In that matter, I dislike
webkit-patch's ways of clearing "r-" flags of patches while it marks it as
obsolete and uploads a new one. Reason: an easy-to-see r-'ed patch is very
helpful to me to understand the chronological progresses in the bug.

What is the reason for clearing r- flag while uploading a new one, instead
of only making it obsolete?
