Oh, sure; it's straightforward to write a script to pull log messages
from a given branch, and if people religiously put 'bug #NNN' in their
log messages, count up the fixed bugs.  Handling bugs fixed per time 
would require more script hacking, but nothing terrifying.

I've done this ever since whatsnew21.  My numbers, surely
underestimates, are:

2.1:	117 patches, 136 bugs
2.2:    527 patches, 683 bugs
2.2.1:	139 patches, 143 bugs
