I don't know whether keeping the bug numbers synchronized is feasible or not,
but I would probably try. debian-bugs-dist doesn't seem to get copies of mail
sent to control@bugs, only the responses from the BTS. I would rather have the
new system see every message that the BTS sees, and process everything for
itself. That way, if it would ever replace the existing BTS, we could be sure
there were no dependencies on the old system.
