One twist to this - as someone who does release management, I'd prefer that
if the bug has been in a released version of Python, it has a bug # that 
can be referenced in the NEWS file for a release. If, as in this case, it's 
in stuff that's never been released (I assume the bug is in Raymond's new 
C-code heapq module), I don't particularly care. 

If others agree with this, perhaps it should go in the developer docs on 
the website...
