It's a smart hack. As is the "ftp.debian.org" or "lists.debian.org"
pseudo-package ...

Huh ? Those mails were never public before ... all information about a
package in a single bug, I find it quite convenient to see the
evolution of the sponsored package.

Yes, that's exactly why it's a bad idea to integrate it in the wnpp

I have no access statistics as it's not my machine. But it's not
relevant information anyway.

The current CGI lists a total of 80 sponsoree. 20 of them currently have a
sponsor. I guess that we can easily have 60 bugs in the "looking for a
sponsor" list and 60 more in the "currently sponsored" list.
