Bug#123234: Deprecate BTS "close" command?

Package: debbugs
Version: 20011209 (bts.debian.org version)
Severity: wishlist

I would love to see the BTS "close" command deprecated.  I can't think
of a single situation in which it is a good thing to use.  The only
situation in which it is currently necessary is in the sequence "close
nnnnn; reopen nnnnn new-email", which should be replaced by the single
command "submitter nnnnn new-email".

If people think this is good and the BTS maintainers want it, I'm
willing to help code this simple change.
