I can think of several circumstances where this is useful: when a bug is closed in unstable but someone using stable wants an explanation for a problem; when a bug is inadvertantly reintroduced; when a maintainer closes a bug caused by user error, and another user does the same thing; when a package is adopted and the new maintainer wants to get a feel for the packages history and the rationale behind various packaging decisions. It would be most useful if someone could search by package name, keyword, and status of the bug report.
