I'd rather see 'em judged on a case-by-case basis than have 200
mechanically generated reports sent out blind. Many are like the
kernel -- the difference is the version number, and that really should
be enough info to go by. (Random example, tk8.0 vs tk8.2.)
Although I do suspect that a careful inspection of package
descriptions would result in well more than 200 cases where a bug
report would be appropriate...the problem is by no means just limited
to dups. Terse and uninformative descriptions are all-too-common.
But finding them all is not something a script can really do.
