Another thing that's concerned me is closing of tickets by anonymous;
can we turn that off? It disturbs me when I'm browsing the RSS feed
and I see that. If a user who's not a developer thinks it could be
closed, they could post a comment saying that, and a developer could
close it.

The RSS feeds are great for that. Although having a way to quickly
revert a change would have made it easier :-)

that'd be good.
