Yes, the "made-of::lang"[0] facet from debtags can be used where needed.
It will just require package tagging (under heavy progress) and a
debbugs patch, still not considered.

The difficulty of solving a bug can't be tracked so easily. What's hard
to me will be easy for others and sometimes it's a moving target. I feel
comfortable with wontfix, moreinfo, unreproducible, pending and some
others tags only. These aren't a drop-in replacement but works, imo.

[0] = `debtags tagsearch made-of::lang` to see the current vocabulary
