I was a bit scared by the length of the list on my system, but
it seems to list all RC bugs for all orphaned packages, not
just those being installed. This is because of rc-alert's

$ dpkg -l bootchart
dpkg-query: no packages found matching bootchart
$ rc-alert -dU bootchart
Package: bootchart
Bug:     731669
Title:   bootchart: outdated version should not be shipped with jessie
Flags:   [        ] (none)
Dists:   [U] (unstable)

Package: src:bootchart
Bug:     817382
Title:   bootchart: Removal of debhelper compat 4
Flags:   [        ] (none)
Dists:   [U] (unstable)

This modification should output only rc-bugs of orphaned and
installed packages, which ony my system is just a single bug
instead of houndreds:

rc-alert -dU `wnpp-alert | grep "^O " | cut -d' ' -f 3`
