Generating stats on regression bugs in bugzilla

I had a theory that we might be getting better at preventing regressions
now than a year or so ago due to the expansion of things like AppDB and
the test suite. It'd be nice to have some sort of data though.
Would it be reasonable to comb through the bugzilla database for all the
bugs tagged regression and analyze them? I'm interested in:
1) quantity and frequency of bugs tagged regression that were filed at
various dates since the release of 1.0. I'm not sure whether it's
better to use the version number field in bugzilla as a proxy for "first
version with regression" or to just guess that from the date.
2) how long regression bugs took to be fixed
