Dear Maintainer,

I propose to add to bts(1) a --cache-mode that caches 'bts status' output.

Use-case: I've taught zsh completion to show the bug subjects alongside
the bug numbers┬╣, but the implementation parses the <title> attribute
from the HTML cache files using Perl, and I'd like to simplify it to
parse 'bts status' output instead, without requiring online access.



┬╣   % bts close symbol<TAB>
    > bug number
    823043  - c++-annotations: FTBFS: `APATH' (symbol) multiply defined - 
    840482  - diffoscope: error at startup: AttributeError: undefined symbol:
