Default Suggestion to ask devs to change their bugzilla name when becoming "devaway"

I think a better solution, if we need to indicate this, is to have
bugzilla grab the status from devaway and display it next to the dev's
name in bug reports. Changing the user's name seems a bit cumbersome,
and I don't agree that people will know what "devaway" means - i.e.
they may not even google it.

sounds like a huge pita for people. better to spend cycles getting
things upgraded and integrated properly.
