Well, there's the mozilla packages, for one example where this hasn't
been the case in practice.  I would rather not have security bugs in
stable be forgotten about because they passed some threshold where the
BTS auto-vanished them.

I don't know if it's feasible, but my ideal vision for how the new
version tracking would handle bugs in stable would be that if the
version in stable is affected, the bug is left open if it's tagged
sarge or if it's of RC severity; otherwise the bug is archived normally.
I don't even see a reason to special-case "security", most such bugs are
going to be of RC severity and the others can be tagged with the
per-suite tag just as we've been doing.
