On the topic on enhancing the bug closing mechanism, I think it would
be really good (and somewhat important) to have the title of the bug
that is being closed listed in the close message.  My guess is that
this could be found using the LDAP database by dinstall.

This would allow the maintainer and bug reporter to verify the correct
bug has been closed, and there wasn't any mistake entering the bug id,
without having to look up the details on the web.
