Roundup is a BTS that works exactly as you say, with some extra
features for auto-subscribing the submitter and people who have
expressed interest in that category. If you throw away the MLM and
replace it with a hook into Mailman, and you create a bug db backend
that just talks to the Debian BTS, maybe you get what you want.
The reason I think this crackpot idea may have some merit is that
Roundup is written in Python, so you might have less trouble with the
tight flexible integration I suspect you need here.
