What'll happen to bug-buddy reports from older bug-buddies (assuming
they traverse the problems and get the mail sent out) when this happens?
Will they just disappear into the ether?  Or will they get returned to
sender as undeliverable?  Or will they get a nice email back saying
something like "We no longer accept bug reports from this.  Please
upgrade your bug-buddy or submit the bug manually at"?

Just curious
