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).
