BTW, when that is done, please submit a wishlist bugreport on the PTS
requesting integration, *together* with a description of the parsing
rules of the error output of bts-link OR maybe a switch to a format
which can be parsed out of the box and is extensible, e.g., yaml.

The PTS is being polluted by tons of micro-parsers for the output of
the tools it monitor, a convergence at least on the surface syntaxes
would be nice to ease future maintenance.

(And yes, patches are always welcome :-))
