Sure.  And to note, Dan said the results would be available via the web.
He did not say that they'd be available via bugzilla.  So as a
recommended procedure, I'd say run coverity and publish the results on
this web location.  Interested maintainers can take that information and
open bugs against their packages.

That puts the onus on the maintainers to go look and doesn't make it
required.  And if nobody goes and looks at the results... I guess it's
no different than how things exist today in that regard :).
