 I'm a bit uncomfortable using religious terms in Trac ticket labels. The
 meaning of "blessed" outside of religious texts in English seems somewhat
 different. Looking at dictionaries, it is:

  - made holy; consecrated
  - of or enjoying happiness
  - bringing pleasure, contentment, or good fortune
  - used in mild expressions of annoyance or exasperation

 Seems lately the `task (blessed)` ticket type is being mentioned more and
 more in documentation. However "blessed" may get even further away from
 the meaning it is used on Trac when translated. Also perhaps offensive for
 certain groups of people and in certain languages/locales.

 In that terms I think "(blessed)" should be removed from the ticket type
 label, or replaced with something more appropriate. Perhaps `approved` or
 `confirmed` or `pre-approved` or `authorized`.
