I tested it and it didn't work, I think because even if you blank out
`gnus-format-specs' at Gnus shutdown, that doesn't blank out the value
of eg `gnus-summary-line-format', so `gnus-format-specs' is simply
rebuilt from the customized value.

I still feel medium-strongly that the registry shouldn't be left hanging
around after Gnus exits, and that it's sheer accident that debbugs used
to work when it *was* left hanging around. On the other hand, figuring
out all the ways in which debbugs-gnu-summary-mode may or may not depend
on the user's Gnus customizations sounds a bit hopeless. Worst come to
worst, I can rework 2815174f to prevent double-loading some other way,
and remove the `gnus-registry-clear' function so the registry isn't
cleared, but I would feel a little bad about that, ha.
