I think it's still got merit, though. It wouldn't be much harder to
provide a URI field for reporting bugs for a package (possibly even in
the control file so it could be used on a device post-install); that
URI could be a mailto:, a Garage bug tracker or even a random Bugzilla

The auto-builder can then support any number of different bug trackers
and report to the appropriate one.
