i don't really think this is a good idea in general.

for bugs that are NEEDINFO, or for enhancement requests, sure, if there
is no interest then close them after some time.

but for bugs that describe a real defect that's reproducible in the
current version, i don't see what we gain by simply resolving the bug
WONTFIX; that doesn't make the defect go away, so likely it'll just be
reported again anyway, especially if it already has some duplicates.
