Topic: New label: broken window

Hey, today I've found myself debugging "things are slow because diagnostics are computed eagarly" issues for the third time, so I introduced a new label: Broken Window. It is for stuff which is not naturally high priority, but nontheless should be fixed as fast as possible, to avoid accumulation of technical debt and minor brokenness.

Roughly, any panic we see is a broken window.

Pantone 448 C, also referred to as "the ugliest colour in the world" ...
The Australian Department of Health initially referred to the colour as "olive green", but the name was changed after concerns were expressed by the Australian Olive Association.[6]

I can confirm that if the software I use is buggy enough I just stop reporting bugs for it because it's not worth my time
