The even cooler thing is, you can get updated (by email) on a bug's status
report. For example, you can be email'd updates on all bugs assigned to you,
and all bugs REPORTED by you. This is very very useful :) (you can see new
comments, when it was closed, etc etc).

I depend on this feature A LOT (really useful when a bug is assigned to
somebody else and you'd like to know when its fixed)
