I assume that you meant:

	unarchive 12345 -1
	reassign -1 foobar
	severity -1 serious

IOW, just like clone?

I agree that unarchived bugs might get spammed even worse than others,
since spammers had at least 28 more days to harvest their nnn-done@b.d.o

Perhaps we could have a default behaviour of -1 being implied and a new bug
being cloned like you describe. This would eliminate excess typing and make
it seem more like the reopen command.

Heck. Why not make reopen smart like that? And then let unarchive actually
do the more atomic operation of just unarchiving a bug (for, say, the
purpose of adding a tag or a version (in the future when that's implemented)
to a bug and then archiving it back).

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
