Exactly. And if I remember correctly... someone, I think it was Ryan... 
asked people on here what they thought should be "high priority" tickets 
or tickets that people would like to see get more attention... And what 
better to knock out first, than the simpler tickets... Especially with 
an Admin redesign coming soon, you can only touch so much tickets 
without interfering with it.. I know I pointed out SOME tickets that 
were pending on the Admin redesign... but they were also planned for 2.4 
though, as well as the Admin redesign stuff...

I agree with this as well. I was going to say more, but I have to leave 
for work. Hopefully things workout here soon. There's so much backlog of 
tickets in Trac now that it's not funny...sigh. Aight.. I'm off for work..
