I know I've had trouble a couple times finding the correct bugzilla
account to add the relevant developer.  People using a different email
for bugzilla than for wine-patches can be very frustrating, you would
think that there would be some sort of better way than the email-only
system to identify the appropriate developer and tag him for the CC
list.  I've only been on the developer side of a regression bug once,
but it seemed like having a relevant bisect where the reporter was
able to identify me as the offender helped a lot toward resolving the
issue quickly.
