  Okay, still I dislike the idea a lot. the BTS is unusable past 100
bugs. For some packages this will add 100 more, that will never go away.
And upstreams wont want to use yetanother bug tracker, they want to use
theirs (especially the ones using RT or BZ that ensure this way never to
recieve too many patches… *cough*).
