What real-time code? Nothing official is using the code in ~doogie/debbugs/.
Looking at the code, it appears it may already handle it. The large if block
in notebug() is against the current state of the bug. You'll then notice that
once this is figured out, it deletes the old state, whether it's now archived,
but wasn't previously, or is now active, and was archived before.
If I were to set down and do it, it'd probably take 2-3 hours. If that.
