bugid's increase a lot faster than patch-ids because they aren't
sequential for perl5.  while id n might be a perl5 bug, id n+1 might
be a parrot bug, n+2..n+7 are likely to be spam that made it past the
filter but not into the queue.  they refer to tickets in the RT and
are shared across all the queues.
