so, if i understand this, the text of the bugs will still contain lots of
bug numbers that link correctly, but read incorrectly. i guess there's
no way to simply edit the bug text during the import, so as to make the
references correct w/o redirection tricks?
(i'm a _very_ low-volume user of the SL bug database, so my comments
should be given appropriate weight. i just think i'd find the dual
numbering more confusing than a one-time conversion.)
