I quite like the idea; it'll give links to the bugs, to avoid having
to search for them, and makes it more obvious on casual inspection the
status of the package; for the same reason that the PTS shows "This
package has an wnpp entry" information, it causes a "blocked by" link
on the bugs.d.o/package page, which would otherwise have no indicator
of the existence of the removal bug.
It would be *nice* if reportbug revealed the removal bug too.
