I am really hesitant to support just having so many bugs floating around
like this. I think that marking as RESOLVED -> WONTFIX enables devs to look
at these if they are ever inclined to do so but makes it clear to the users
that we won't be doing this (almost guaranteed). I think if we just keep
asking them to update it we give them the hope that there is a chance when
in fact there isn't, plus we add that we'll have bugs open for months
(year(s)) that won't be fixed ever and then ultimately just go to
WILLNOTFIX, when we knew that months prior to changing the status.
