i think pinging NEW bugs in the same interval as NEEDINFO bugs is wrong
- the interval for NEW bugs should be *at least* twice as long, perhaps
4x, because the NEW bugs are already confirmed whereas the NEEDINFO ones
are not and are likely to be closed INVALID, and we have to take care
not to annoy people *regularly* too often for every confirmed bug.

of course, in the unlikely case that say 50% of pinged NEW bugs turn out
to be fixed then i'm wrong :)
