Hu? No. What I meant is have INSUFFICIENTDATA on the same level as
WORKSFORME and INVALID, a status attribute, not a status. So if a bug
was in status NEEDINFO for some time and info wasn't provided it can be
set to RESOLVED INSUFFICIENTDATA and then closed (we may even think of
skipping RESOLVED and directly go to CLOSED instead, as it is no
resolution, just closing a bug).
