Not only that, it should be off by default.
End users tend to use the default configurations, and the last thing we 
need is a bugzilla so slow that end users will be dicouraged from 
reporting bugs.
In my mind, it is triage and QA who would benefit the most from such a list.
It seems if we were to have such a list, that it might be better to make 
it a separate (web) application, which could be referred to in a 
separtate tab/window, so it is charged only once for reviewing a number 
of bugs.
But if triage/QA is not interested, it is better to avoid this big list.

Another thought : maybe we should have separate rpm and srpm fields.
Because end-users will relate more to ordinary rpm's, several of which 
could be generated by the same srpm.
Do you think that would be useful ?

my 2 cents :)
