I agree we should have a either a keyword per dll or a component per
dll.  If I decide to work on shell32 bugs, querying bugzilla for
shell32 should return all shell32 bugs.  Just searching comments or
summary doesn't always catch them, because the reporter might not know
that shell32 is the cause of the problem.  We're pretty close to this
system already with components like wine-ole, wine-richedit,
wine-shdocvw etc, so taking the extra step would be very benificial.
