Personally, I would rather see erroneously filed FTBFS bugs than bugs
missed getting reported.  An erroneously filed FTBFS bug can be quickly
closed by the maintainer of the package.  Especially in the case of mass
filings resulting from things like rebuilding the archive or other
cases (like the bug reporter not knowing/being able to access the stuff
in NEW), I think there should be a bit of leniency.
