Another question: should the patch be attached to the bug or is it
sufficient to provide a link to a mailing list post?
I'm leaning towards the former in which case the definition could be
amended as such:
| Bugs with this keyword contain an attachment with a proposed fix.
| The fix may be incomplete, break other applications or be otherwise
| unacceptable as long as it does fix the symptoms described in the
| bug and is not a pure workaround (such as altering Wine's behavior
| based on the executable filename, replacing an implemented function
| with a stub, etc.).
