"Code Pointers" could be confusing, because pointers exist in C++

I'm seeing some confusion in how 'NeedAdvice' is used as well, so for
our Whiteboard tags let's:
1) Pick something that's very clear
2) Write up rules on proper use

My understand was that "ProposedEasyHack" was just that: A
non-developer (or a developer who didn't have experience w/the
relevant section of code) was suggesting that a particular bug be
classified as an EasyHack.

Perhaps something like NeedsDevEval?  (as we need both a difficulty
eval, plus additional EasyHack-related whiteboard tags, plus pointers
to the right place to stack fixing this bug)
