Agreed.  It would be nice to have a mail server command `resurrect',
or similar, that would bring a dead bug back to life (if it were
found not to be dead, or whatever; several reasons were listed above).

This would also be some way to producing some kind of automated list of
bugs fixed in each release of Debian; people could visit a list somewhere
showing them precisely which bugs in which packages had been fixed
between their version of Debian and unstable.
