I'm not taking it personal. =) I posted the ticket urls in an attempt to 
get something done with them quicker. (Either; commit it, or forget it 
wise)  I know you all check Trac if you want to work on something 
specific and etc. But for example: #2648 .... would/could sit there for 
weeks more, or maybe even bumped to another version by accident, or 
something... when really it could just be deleted NOW... not later... I 
also went through the tickets, seen the comments and etc as well. I know 
what was discussed in them, I know their status and state. Few of them 
are awaiting for Happy Cog redesign. Few of them ha ve patches to files 
that no longer exist or their file names were changed, or they just 
basically irrelevant... The plain list isn't to piss people off, but to 
help bring attention to the "junk in the trunk" to help get it done 
soon, or have it removed soon because it's "junk"...
