well, you can still get the version, when the bug was closed from the
changelog. If we do not close the bug, nobody will get a note that the
bug has been fixed (in the new default version). Bugs reported for 3.2
have been closed when 3.3 became the default version, not earlier.
what interest does Debian have in keeping these bugs open?
