Isn't that a feature? It's relatively rare for it to be worthwhile to
assign a bug to multiple packages that happen to have the same version
number; about the only case where that can happen short of pure
coincidence is assigning to multiple binaries from a single source,
which doesn't seem terribly valuable from the version-tracking point of
view as they'll all be closed simultaneously anyway.
The current regex allows you to reassign to a package and at the same
time list multiple versions that you know manifest the bug, which seems
a bit more useful.
Oh, but I've just realised that you might mean reassigning to multiple
package/version pairs. Yes, that would be useful. I'd suggest
PACKAGE/VERSION PACKAGE/VERSION ... as the syntax.
