A good solution would be to have bugs@ traffic "flow" into Bugzilla, and
bugs could be marked off there, by threading replies together or manually
- otherwise, it's hard to catch a bug that was reported more than a few
weeks ago, because one would have to swim through a good amount of email.

Messages to bugs@ would still work the same way, but it'd be possible to
get a summary more easily.  This would probably still need human
intervention to match reports and replies...  Something for me to work on,
