Right.  Big -1 on this abandoned user hack.

update_status even has support for per-project status terms, not only  
the per-release terms.  There's just no server-side code for this  
yet, since #99466 has languished due to Dries wanting to hold up the  
basics until all the UI bling was done, then losing interest and  
abandoning the issue when the rest of us replied. ;)  Busy man, that  

Anyway, #99466 is the right way to deal with this, on so many levels.

For no particularly good reason (other than it's never been a high  
prio and I haven't had time) this doesn't work for anonymous users.
