#30 bugs up and up

Since the number of outstanding bugs just continues to go up and up, why should we think that Mozilla will _ever_ be a professional quality product? The only way to predict when a product will be shippable with adequate quality is to extrapolate from the bug curve, and the constant increase in the defect line over the months predicts that it will never reach a low level of defects.

There appear to be basic architectural flaws in the Mozilla code base which lead to excessive regressions and a low bug fix rate. If these aren't addressed, then we might as well write off this code base.
