Agree. If we start allowing issues to remain open until it is the last  
issue, we will never finish. In fact, in the past, we've specifically  
denied requests to hold open particular issues until they are the last  
issue.

If we want to get done in a reasonable time frame, we should act as if  
every issue is already the last issue.
