which increases the number of lines, filling the page with even more chatter,
and requires a number of already-filled-in fields to be changed.

if you think it through, you'll find that adding those two proposed fields
results in a very compact use of screen space.

for two people, six lines are used up with (three) TOML fields. the
bugzilla field description at the left provides a visual field break,
as does the box around the data.

if it is one field with [brackets] format it's *20* lines.  10 per person,
3-4 per "section" (including blank line dividers to provide clarity)

if four people contribute that's *FORTY* lines.
