Thanks for this. I've committed it to the ELPA repo. There are some few
other points on my debbugs todo list; will fix them over the
weekend. After this, debbugs 0.9.6 will be released.

That's not possible. `debbugs-get-status' retrieves all information via
the Debbugs SOAP interface which are available, see its docstring. You
could check the attributes also in the *Emacs Bugs* buffer, typing "d"
(à la "debug") over a bug. The only exception here is "cache_time", this
attribute is added by debbugs.el.

Extending the SOAP interface this way is out of our scope, I fear. And
it would also decrease the performance.

I will add a note to the User Guide about this deficiency.
