I, genuinely, hope that these removals-warnings will make people fix
bugs pro-actively rather than reactive.  From my PoV, more visibility
and focus on these bugs is welcome.  However, I know from experience
that I will not be able to maintain a manual "friendly reminder" (at
least not in a timely/reliable fashion), which is why I made this a
one-time thing.
  You (as in anybody) are more than welcome to implement a
weekly-reminder thing or so.  Not sure if people would welcome such a
thing on debian-devel, but having some way of at least opt-in on such a
reminder/warning would be a great idea.

That said, as much as I think it is a great idea I cannot volunteer to
do it.  I already have a sufficient "d-release" backlog ... :-/  Even
the current implementation was "out-sourced".
  On a related note, kudos to Ivo De Decker for being the "Do'er" behind
automatic removals!
