Hi Mark,

I can see your point.  I'm not liking "SUNBUG" a lot better, but absent 
anything better, we can use it.  I'm not tied to TRACKEDINBUGTRAQ, other 
than the fact that that's what the OpenSolaris folks were using and 
would make the bridge a little bit easier.

I did a bit of surgery on the description, but it's done and rolled out.
