One possible way to achieve that goal:
Bugzilla (at least in the version used on bugs.kde.org) grants each user a
limited amount of votes for each project which the user can then assign as
desired. If the user doesn't have any votes left, she needs to take them back
from unimportant issues and reassign these votes to the more pressing ones.
Combined with age multipliers, I think this might make for a voting system
with a reasonable trade-off between popularity and necessity.
