Thanks for your effort to make Trac life easier for everyone!

This is something I'm not entirely happy with. Using the saved query
to look up GetTor, BridgeDB and Weather bugs is like the one feature I
use in Trac. Sure, I can use bookmarks for this in different browsers
I use. On the other hand, I doubt the projected benefit: I might be
wrong, but I wonder if deleting the saved reports will result in even
a single new volunteer starting to fix bugs for us.
