Mostly, I agree, but I definitely disagree, I'm afraid, on the use of the tracker for discussions. To keep track of discussions on a ticket, I have to personally keep a list of the tickets I'm interested in, check back regularly to see if there's anything new, and keep a mental note of where I've read up to so I know what's new.
Others have already noted that Roundup not only emails you with new comments, but also lets you reply via email. That happens for anyone on the nosy list for an issue (commenting on an issue automatically adds you to the nosy list).
In addition, you can fairly easily create a saved query to show you all the open tickets that you are on the nosy list for. (Although I created and saved my query for that so long ago that I don't recall the exact details on how to go about doing that).
