There are various little things that make it difficult for Firefox OS phone to be a daily use phone.

The little things add up to big experience.

Let's identify those little things and fix them.

Removing a couple of bugs that aren't "papercuts". Please read the description of the metabug carefully before adding bugs.

I'm reading comment 0 carefully.

On hindsight, I agree ASLR is not a "little thing". 

> The little things add up to big experience.

Clearing private data is probably arguable in that it only matters to people who care more about privacy, but it can be subjective whether it matters to the "big experience".

However, wrt. bug 846595 (which was removed as a dependency), if I'm an Arabic user (I do read a little Arabic, but only just a little), it seemed to be an obvious annoyance, though it is l10n-related, and not English, and we don't ship Arabic yet, and there's probably another RTL metabug elsewhere, so I guess you might mean a daily use phone for all locales, or shipping locales, so that wasn't clear.

Of course, feel free to prune as one sees fit, but just to be fair, I read comment 0 carefully, and that the definition here can sometimes mean different things to different people.
Thanks Gary! RTL support is a huge change that needs to implemented fully across the entire OS, so that's why I removed it from this particular metabug. At the point at which we need to ship with an RTL language, it'll happen as a fully-fledged project.

I don't think all bugs added as dependencies here abide by this definition.

To me, the criterias for blocking this bug are:
* easy to fix bugs, so that one can take one and fix it in say 2 hours.
* impair usability enough

I love that idea! But it is a different metabug. Or better, a keyword or whiteboard.

Also, those "i can fix this in 2 hours..." bugs often take days or weeks, but that's a conversation we can have crying into our beer mugs.

> * impair usability enough

Papercuts, as I define them for the purpose of this bug, are issues that impair usability *not* enough for us to fix before releasing. Individually, they hurt a little during daily usage, but you can keep going as a user.

But when they accumulate, you bleed jusqu'à la mort :(
