Yeah, but if people don't know their way around Wine procedures, what are
the odds they'll tag the thing with 'patch'? If people who know these 
things notice such a patch in Bugzilla, it's WAY better that they suggest
the patch be submitted to wine-patches (or submit it themselves), rather
than creating a mechanism for perpetuating a practice we don't want.

Both. They have no business in Bugzilla.

Again, maybe, but there are *many* DLLs, and there isn't such a pressing
need to add all this complexity. Just put the name of the DLL in the
subject, and search for it there. That should do for now, no?
