Sadly, I can't have a clean diff from your debianbts.py and the one in
the svn repo.

Sorry, who are you referring to as "upstream"? debbugs team?
pypt-offline coders?

Mh, well, one of the goal of reportbug for lenny+1 is to get rid of
custom Debian BTS query code and start using one of the external
modules[1][2] available (there was already a discussion[3] about it
recently), so that part of reportbug code will be dropped.
