you can't because the BTS is way too slow anyway. for 95% of the NMU I 
do, I receive the acks for message I send at least 15 minutes, often 30 
minutes after my mails.

most of the NMU I do take me less than 20 minutes from apt-get source to 
upload, with already too many administrative tasks to perform to avoid 
adding a new one.

I don't claim my bugs, because it's too painful. and if someone worked 
on the same bug before me, then too bad, I've lost 20 minutes of my 
time. It happens rarely enough to not worth the added minute I would 
lost claiming the bug.

Only a web form that instantaneously report that I claim the bug would 
have any chance to be usefull. Using the BTS (in its current reactivity 
and implementation at least) for interactive tasks is IMHO a bad idea. 
And please, don't propose yet-another-application to talk to to perform 
an upload. We have enough administrivia already.
