It definitely looks like a useful tool to have somewhere.  I'm
interested in what the reportbug people (Cced) think about integrating
the functionality, as you suggested in your initial request.

In the mean time, I can add it to my list of things to look at when I
next have some time to work on devscripts.  I'm hoping to get some soon,
but things have been a bit hectic lately.
