Interactive Support is supported by a SunOS 4.1 kernel, so bugs that are
specific to other platforms will not be emulated, but can still be commented
on as text.

Some 'bugs' will likely provoke some comment by other users, which might
include corrections or workarounds.  These comments are integrated into the
html document created when the 'bug' was first submitted.

I will maintain a master html with links to specific discussions.  

Let's see how this schema develops ... suggestions always welcome.
