Hm, yeah. So the brave new world will be that bugs won't be listed as
fully closed in unstable until all architectures are in sync?

I think, then, we let the 'found' bugginess state win, then 'fixed',
then 'absent', so when listing bugs across architectures the buggiest
one wins. I've got untested code for that now.

Eventually yes, although it's convenient for debugging at the moment.
Actually, maybe have it default to yes but allow "showotherverbugs=no"?
I rather like having them there to make sure bugs don't get lost, TBH.
