[rt-devel] Status values

Well, there are a couple different answers to this:

        1. There has been work done by a user to move the list of possible
        statuses into the database. I'm not sure I've ever seen it.  At this
        late date in RT1's life cycle, I'd be unlikely to make a change
        like this that would require users to futz with their database schema
        as part of an upgrade.

        2. RT2 currently doesn't let you futz with the list of statuses.  
        However, it _does_ let you define arbitrary keyword selects for use
        with each (or every) queue.

...realized that the entire structure of the net could be changed to be made 
more efficient, elegant, and spontaneously make more money for everyone 
involved. It's a marvelously simple diagram, but this form doesn't have a way 
for me to draw it.  It'll wait. 				-Adam Hirsch
