While I understand Rob's concerns, I think in this case we do want to be opinionated and keep people from getting themselves into trouble. "less flexible" is a feature not a bug in this case. :-)

Yes, we should fix the surrounding issues, some of which will be fixed by our current work to improve subscriptions. But there is rarely a case where subscribing to all of a distribution's bugs is what people actually want to do. For the times where there is -- e.g., someone wants to archive all bug activity for a distribution -- there is an easy work around by subscribing to the mailing list or join the bug supervisor team. Perhaps this adds some UI complexity to communicate how one would go about this, but I think this risk is acceptable given the alternatives and the few number of people who desire this.

I'll also take a look at the code now to review this for Brian, to get him unblocked on this work.
