Proposal for another tag:


	This bug is fixed or worked around by the upstream authors,
	but either there's not yet a new upstream release or a new
	Debian package.

Allows to document which bugs are known and fixed upstream. Currently
used for gcc & Co packages as prefix for the bug title.

Definitely useful; show all bugs that do have / don't have tags and
don't need more work (tag fixed upstream, or tags that signal: nothing
to do for the moment).
