It shouldn't have to become more complex. We could simply run the same 
algorithm twice, once with the "patched-in" versions and once with 
the "fixed-in" versions as input (the current terminology of the BTS is 
is "Fixed in versions ...", so I'd prefer to call the new state "patched"). 
If a particular version is found to be both patched and fixed, then it is 
considered fixed. The downside is that a bug can't simply be downgraded from 
fixed to patched; it would have to be marked found and patched in the same 
version, but that's hopefully a relatively rare situation.
