it seems to be neccessary to be able to close bugs for other packages.
but if this is not the case for your current changelog entry, you could
manually include a safety check.

something like: (fixes packagename#bugnumber) will refuse to close
a bug on packages other than 'packagename'.

how difficult would it be to implement this?
