Couldn't you just pull the changelog entries for each package that differs
between testing and unstable, pull the 'closes' entries for each of those, and
"voila"? Grab severities from the BTS, cull those which are still open, and you
have a "hidden RC bug" count. True, you don't get those which were closed with
an email to control or -closes, but I'm sure it's only popular with people
who're already keeping sarge-only bugs open manually, or for non-bugs.

And it's very hard to count bugs that don't appear in the BTS. ^_^

Of course, "voila" may actually take a significant amount of time... but could
it be slower than the two hours it takes a human to do it?
