I recently discovered that the apport retracer is also identifying
possible regressions when retracing bug reports.  At the moment it is
only adding a comment regarding this, however I've spoken to Martin
regarding adding a tag too.  I went ahead and queried the database for
bugs with the comment subject "Possible regression detected" and have
posted[0] a list of these bug numbers and their current status and
importance.  This list may also be worth reviewing, but please don't tag
all of them as we haven't decided on a tag for the retracer to use.
