Getting the 38 flags showing already is a good idea, especially as the 
in-between "blockers" would not really block unless they were real 
showstoppers. It should probably be tracking-thunderbird_esr38 if we want to 
follow the current convention.

Hard blockers should get tracking-thunderbird_esr38+
"Things we want done" for a particular release, and no staff does not work 
very well together. Even if some things gets a plus, that buys you fairly 
little besides some limited increased visibility.

We could just put [wanted-thunderbird-next] in the whiteboard as things come 
up, and only some limited group would set that. But going through  nominations 
is really time consuming so I don't think it's really worth having a 
requestable flag for it.
