Yeah, sorry about that. I managed to screw up on that bug 2 or 3 times...
Well, I restored the bug status after I noticed the problem. Sorry about the
number of useless emails it must have generated :(

Better add packages provided, as well. However, that will require some sort
of indexing of the bugs per package to be retrieved by dinstall prior to its

There's a way to do this without replicating the bug/package index: dinstall
could email bugnumber-done-verify@d.b.o, including a new subheader with the
packages the bug may apply to. 

d.b.o would then refuse to close the bug if it is assigned to a package not
in the list. When refusing, it just needs to forward the mail back to the
package uploader, who needs simply to forward it back to foo-done@b.d.o if
the bug should indeed be closed.
