Interesting. I proposed doing this as a Google Summer of Code project
but CIRT didn't get chosen for participation.  Of course, my hope was to
go a bit beyond 'grep and gripe' and have eyes-on results before anyone
would be notified (and then it would automatically notify the
SourceForget project admin & track days since notification, etc.)...
