    Literal Bisected-by might not make for a very good tag. Bisection is a
    way to pin down a bug; just one of them. So say person A reports and
    person B says "Hey, I know what that is. Try reverting foo." B then
    doesn't fit the tag while the only difference is that B was clever
    enough to not need a bisection. So if this is about giving credit;
    Tracked-down-by maybe? Something else?

    Rene.
