The only reason for considering a rewrite was the fact that when I
opened the source code of debbugs to see what would be necessary to
include bugs dependencies I saw that the code is absolutely non-modular
and I actually couldn't find the way to do the proposed change, I mean,
the problem is the maintainability (does this word actually exists in
english?) of the code.

I was thinking about an object-oriented re-implementation, using some
relational database (probably mysql) to make it easier to change the
behaviour of the system later.
