I have a problem with your use of these definitions because they are not
present in the send-pr script or any of the other bug submission methods.
This means it has been left entirely up to the submitter to know what
'critical' and 'high priority' mean. In short, I don't think we can trust
the judgements of all the above reports because of that.
