Unfortunately the contents of the Severity and Priority fields in
the PR database have suffered from "grade inflation" and as such
have lost their meaning long ago.
Leaving them in the database is, at this point, just a bug.
In any case, with FreeBSD ports being all volunteer-driven, there's
really no requirements that we can put on the volunteers to prioritize
one PR over another. It really depends on how motivated they are
as to how they allocate their time.
