While wine-bugs can notify us of new bugs, there's not really anyway
to search for 'untriaged' bugs. A keyword or a default component would
allow for this. Since I spend most of my time attempting to
verify/triage new bugs as well as trimming out old bugs, this would be
a big help.

On a side note, what is the general consensus on an 'unimplemented
function' keyword?
