I can only see usefulness for QA team (orphaned) packages. A properly
maintained package should have a thinking machine (maintainer)
who is able to discriminate what's a spurious bug and what's not.
That could be useful to create a priority list for QA team jobs, but
I wonder if it's better than the proposed popcon approach.
