Sounds good, tho IIUC debbugs already has a notion of "pending" as a bug
state, so maybe we should use another word, such as "postpone".

That's a risk, indeed.  We could use a script to un-postpone all bugs
whenever the new branch is opened.

OTOH, we've used a different approach in the past: create a new branch
`pending' and install patches there.
