+1 (with a big "+"). Might even be better (even if as a longer term 
solution) if there was a way to have issues for "components" 
automatically assigned to folks . I know I know ... "feel free to patch 
project.module". But, personally, it would speed response up greatly 
if, say, all image.inc issues automatically showed up in "my issues" 
(and consequently in my issue feed).

I mean, I realize this delegation sorta happens now informally... but I 
also know I've been asked to have a look at patch X and if I don't do 
it right away (or make a note to do it later) I forget.
