	I love the "fixed in 3.6.1" type automated comments - they're -really-
useful for QA to see which versions a bug is fixed in and to set
expectations right I guess.

	I suppose we could ask/pay Tollef to work on extending:


	To add some flag magic for a new option for some the "ignore fixedin
XYZ" version stuff - but that's a bit of a PITA to maintain going
forward I suspect; I wonder if a mail filter could do the same.

	Yep - I guess auto-spamming can go too far; OTOH, it is rather relevant
that a fix for a bug has shown up and useful for a reporter to know that
there is a build of it to try out. Also we fix on average ~6 bugs per
day though we want to raise that - so, even if they're all in calc - if
we get it right with a single new bugzilla comment that says:

	"a gerrit branch, with a patch that fixes this bug was built
	 for the specified platform >here<"

	And then no further comments afterwards seems like it might be on the
acceptable side ?

	Anyhow - thanks for raising the issue ! :-)
