I guess my point is more that it would be nice to have an explicit way for
the bug reporter to say "I don't care about this bug any more, please stop
contacting me about it" and then the maintainer can decide whether to keep
the bug open or not.
But maybe this is rare enough that we don't need technical support for it.
