This might be a feature for lintian, although it would involve
querying the bts every time lintian is run, which could be a
Bad Thing, especially for people who don't have always-up

I'm willing to code this, it's a pretty simple check on
the changes file and the BTS.  But should it be part of
lintian?  Or should it be standalone--I don't think it would
be used as much if it were standalone.  Comments?
