If it's an obvious bug, like "page fails to scroll if screen is in 16
bit color mode", then you can just comment on the bug that you're
looking into it and then submit a patch.

If it's a larger design issue, or feature request that changes the UI,
it's good to bring it up on chromium-dev for discussion.  Which you've
done.  :)

If someone else was thinking about working on that bug, they would now
look at it and see that you had mentioned you were working on it.
They would then likely ask you if you were still working on it, or if
you had given up and forgotten to update the bug.  So it's effectively
yours to work on, now.

The options, from the bug, are Ctrl+Alt or Ctrl+Shift.  I don't know
how we'd choose, so I'd just pick one for your patch, implement it,
and if there's a reason to change it it'd be pretty easy to switch.
