I think in that case you'd have to drop back to tags. The distribution
tags will mostly be hints for when to archive a bug, but adding the
'sid' tag would be reasonable documentation here. But yes, if you
consider it to have basically been a bug in cplay all along then you
should also say found-in version-from-the-dawn-of-time.

If it were the other way round, tagging the bug 'sarge' would tell
debbugs "don't archive this bug until the fixed version appears in the
sarge suite".
