Checking for packages in NEW looks complex: I would have to look at the
changes file to see if the bugs I'm going to mail about are actually
being closed. And I can't extrapolate whether the upload will be able to
migrate to testing eventually.

So I think that I'll just ignore NEW for now. But if I get many replies
about that, I will reconsider that of course.
