i still think there's value in knowing what version the bug was  
reported against in the first place.  if we want to say "show me all  
the still-open bugs that were submitted for 4.7.x" we still can, but  
we'd know that those are a different class of urgency than the new  
bugs reported for 5.x (critical vs. normal vs. minor aside).

it's easy to query for what you want to know if you have a more  
specific classification system.

if you just lump everything together into something called "HEAD",  
it's impossible to usefully filter the stuff back out again depending  
on what you want to know.

that's how i see it...
