One somewhat messy option would be to continue using debbugs for the
existing bug database, and to use Gitlab only for new bugs.
Presumably over time we would want to fix the bulk of what's
in the existing database anyway. When the number in the old database
gets small enough, one could find an ad hoc solution for the fairly
small number of bugs remaining.

I'm not completely sold on this idea myself, but it would be one way
to avoid making the transition simpler. It also has clear
disadvantages, including forcing the devs to deal with two bug
systems for quite a while.
