When we first introduced Jira, we allowed the priority field to be set
by the reporter, and this resulted in me spending rather a lot of time
turning P0's and P1's into P3's and P4's.  Before long my boss decided
to hide the priority field from the Create Issue form.  I don't know
whether the climate has changed enough since then for it to be
reasonable to expect a different result if we were to put the priority
field back in the form.
