Annoying, isn't it? I do it quite often to keep the number of release-critical
bugs down :).

Personally, I would have absolutely *no* problem with others closing bugreports
for my packages, although it is something amusing to be in the 3l1t3-group
of maintainers with over 100 bugs.

I can see however that in general allowing one to close bugs for another
maintainer does not scale very well.

Severity bogus :). This is something that indeed annoys me greatly: a lot
of bugs that are filed are actually no bugs at all. You can however explain
the real problem and ask the submitter to close the bug.
