Github issues database really needs a cleanup

If I recall we closed something like 200 of them one night, but like you
said that's a drop in the bucket. :(

If we want to just do an expunge, I have an idea of what should happen: we
give people a week to tag bugs that they care about and then kill the ones
nobody loves, tagging them as being closed for this reason so people don't
think they're resolved.

Do you remember what the import date was? We should probably only delete
bugs older than this.
