Well, I thought of this, yes.  But there are times when a program uses
more than one language.  For example, Oregano (an electronics program
that I help maintain) is coded in C, uses a lot of GTK, but also has
some perl scripts... So, if a bug occured in a perl script, it would
show up as a C+GTK bug, which it is not...

In any case, it _would_ be nice to make use of the debtags, since in
most cases the language tag would be appropiate, I just haven't
figured out how to do both.
