No, that is a lot of manual work.
I mean something like:
$ bug-forward 456789 bacula
and have it Just Work.
As it is, I have to track down accounts for the individual systems, often
copy and paste info from multiple messages, tag the Debian bug, then perhaps
relay info between the two bug tracking systems indefinately. A huge pain.
