searching bug CONTENTS in BTS archives

Is there a way to search through old bug report bodies, not just
subjects?  I submitted a wishlist bug report to the kernel package
requesting CONFIG_MAGIC_SYSRQ and got this response:

  > Please check the BTS archive, this has been talked about many
  > times already.

All I can find is three or so archive bug reports from others who have
made this request and have gotten the same response.  The most
detailed response was that this is not consistent with the spirit of
prepackaged kernels.  If there is a discussion about this somewhere,
how can I find it?  I guess I'm looking for something akin to what I'm
used to with Bugzilla: the ability to perform complex queries against
the bug "database".  What I've done is to go bring up active and
archive bugs from http://bugs.debian.org in the kernel package and
just search the text of what's displayed.  This basically just amounts
to subjects.

Thanks for any assistance.
