Well ... I'm willing to try to do my part, but is it possible to "close
the loop" ... in other words, if a sales droid tells me that they "did
something", can someone verify that in fact they _did_ do something

I'm willing to do that as well ... but my experience has shown me
REPEATEDLY that Apple basically makes one halfhearted attempt to
resolve a bug report files that way, and then ignores it. Happened to
me twice. These weren't OpenAFS issues, but I can't imagine that the
experience in filing bug reports dealing with third-party software
is going to be any better.
