Actually, I did try writing to the bugscan comments file the other day
like I used to in potato, but about 24 hours later it got cleared back
to just a handful of exclusions.

Most of the comments end up being "Doesn't affect woody" (since the
bugs apply to later versions of the package than is in woody), and most
of the new bugs that appear would need that comment added, so it's not
really helpful for me.
