It's actually supported in all of them; the underlying implementation
is the following:

=head2 splitpackages


Split a package string from the status file into a list of package names.


sub splitpackages {
    my $pkgs = shift;
    return unless defined $pkgs;
    return map lc, split /[ \t?,()]+/, $pkgs;

[It's in Debbugs/Status.pm]

As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both
instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly
unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be most aware
of change in the air however slight lest we become unwitting victims
of the darkness.
