BTS: How are the bug reports organized?

I'm currently working on a tool that automatically fetches all bug reports
belonging to one package.

The base url is http://www.debian.org/Bugs/db/ and I always thought that the
subdirectories were designed so that only up to 999 files go into a single

But today, I noticed that this assumption seems to be wrong when trying to
download the page for e.g. Bug#8429. It's not in /8/ but /84/.

So, the directory is only determined by the leading 2 digits?
If so, what will happen when our bugs reach 6 digit numbers (Currently, the
number of bug reports seems to grow exponentially...). Putting 10000-1
files into a single directory doesn't sound very wise to me...
