It is possible to do so, it's just messy.

wishlist is what I usually use.

This is not possible, but I agree, it would be nice.

You can do some of this - here's a lookup for all packages with the tag

(again, bad wrap, sorry)

But I agree, being able to search the body of the bugs for some text
string would be nice.  I think robots.txt is set to keep spiders out, so
google shouldn't be indexing the bts.
