 Not really, but realistically closed PRs are not reopened except by
 people who already know about them. A different person who comes along
 with the same problem won't look for a match among issues that are
 supposedly already fixed... even if they search the database at all.

 That's true. But the existence of this discussion in the PR itself
 should prevent that. :-)
 (The reason I've been arguing for a "stuck" state is to make this
 clear, though. There are quite a few PRs in this situation.)
