If an option has *never* worked on a given configuration, then it's not
a regression. That's not a matter of taste, it's a matter of language.
We prioritise regressions because they mean that someone's previously
working configuration no longer works. Tying the word "regression" to
other bugs just to get someone to look at them faster is
counterproductive.
