That's interesting, indeed, even if I think we are more interested in what 
bugs are still open rather than in what packages it was present previously.

The main reason for that is that we only have the latests versions in the 
repositories. Knowing which bugs they don't have anymore seems less important 
than knowing which bugs they have now, but I may be wrong about this specific 
user need.

However I keep your suggestion somewhere in my mind :)
