Let's pick this up again, but for Libtool only for now.

Do any Libtool developers or regulars have any issue with this?
We do keep forgetting about bug reports, and we do have contributors
that only work every once in a while, and for both it would seem to
be useful to have a list of open issues.

Eric had concerns that it would be difficult to tell which package a bug
was against.  The Sender: header shows this, however, so I don't see it
as a big problem (unless your MUA cannot be configured to show this
particular header).  Or we could modify debbugs to provide some more

If there is no disagreement by, let's say Monday, Glenn could you then
set up debbugs for the bug-libtool list?
