Right. So what I meant to say is, is that a problem? Should Launchpad 
know about a greater proportion of the Debian bugs? If so, how can we 
make it easier to link an Ubuntu bug to a Debian one?

Alternatively, if we can never get 100% linkage, is it a waste of time 
linking in the first place, since that won't reduce the traffic of the 
fixed-in-Debian mailing list, so it will be more work overall?
