I think your suggestion of sending new bugs out to LKML has made a big
dent in the one<->one problem already. Replacing all the default owner
fields with mailing lists (either existing ones or new ones) instead of
individuals would be another step in that direction, though there may
be a few hurdles to deal with on the way to that.
Yes, we probably also need an "email back in" interface as we've
discussed before to take it up to many-many.

OK ... But I'd rather try to fix it than to throw the baby out with the
bath water. I don't believe it's "unfixable" - the concept of tracking
bugs / problems and making sure they're closed out still seems sound to me.
As an example, I've seen several examples already where I've pestered
people about bugs that already had patches attatched to them that resulted
in "oh, yeah, I forgot to actually submit that", and it's got fixes back
into mainline. I find it somewhat hard to believe that just about every
other big project (including open source ones) uses some form of bug
tracking system, and yet Linux is somehow magically different ;-)
