The close tag is more than an added bonus; it will make it significantly
easier for future version support in the BTS to automatically tie past
changes to version numbers in which they were fixed. Obviously there'll
have to be some other method as well for manual use, but since it hasn't
been invented yet you clearly can't be using it. Currently, messages
forwarded from katie to debbugs are the only machine-parseable bug
closing mails we have.
