See my follow-up email.  Maybe we should adjust all these in GNOME-BZ now?
 Mark them "NOTGNOME" (which I will modify to NOTGNUCASH during the
import), and change the dependency to a See_Also link (which we can leave
as a link to bugzilla.gnome.org now and I'll migrate to something else
later, or during the import).

I think it's better to make the change in gnome-BZ vs me doing it manually
in the json files (which can be refreshed if someone DOES modify the bug
