I have been trying to do this, but have a few questions.

Many of the "critical" bugs only affect a small group of people.  I
think that there are really two ideas that need to be expressed
(severity and priority) but they are jammed into the one field

If we encounter bugs that are severe, but which only affect a small
group of people, should we change their priority to "normal" just to
get them off this list?

It would also be nice to have a status of "not-repeatable" since that
seems like a discrete problem different from the current status
values.  Or should those items just get turned into "support requests"
and moved out of the queue?
