I imagine most responses will be of two kinds:

1) No reply. Then what?

2) A slightly annoyed "yes, of course my wishlist/doc bug/whatever"
still applies, didn't you read it/test it/try my patch?".

The useful replies I expect to be a small minority ("It was fixed in
24.1", "I misunderstood and this is not actually a bug", etc.)

So I expect the result will be mostly be to annoy the bug reporters.

Well, ok.

I'm not optimistic that an automatic process can tell us much, but I
guess we'll see.
