Indeed, sadly I was out of time so I couldn't play with it that much,
in particular because the reportbug bugs pagination output heavily
relay on the current output of html scraper (and that code is a pain
to debug/rewrite).

Well, I see a sort of standardization over using python-btsutils, even
due to its possible inclusion in python-debian, so it might be the
right move for you to start merging (if needed) python-debianbts into
python-btsutils, contacting that package's author (you can keep us in
CC, just FYI).
