[GNC-dev] Dormant Bugzilla Accounts

All accounts that touched any GnuCash bug were migrated over.  The ONLY
user data migrated were email address and full name.  The user account
passwords were NOT migrated because password data is not accessible (which
is a GOOD THING).  So all those accounts are, technically, in a dormant
state.  If those users would like to access them then they will need to
perform a password reset on the account.

Removing accounts is... challenging.  The database requires them to remain
in order to maintain proper history.

Is there a problem with keeping the accounts around?
