FWIW, Debian's advisories are reasonably machine-parseable now - quite a
bit better than certain other distributions.  I hope mainly that things
won't get worse.  What would be nice is if the new format could be
publicly posted a few days before you actually start using it.  That would
give us time to fix our scripts and point out anything that makes life
