What I envision:

- New bugs gets CC:d to the ML. Perhaps after a quick manual inspection 
that it's a real bug report an not just crap, and that it's suitable for 
public discussion.

- Comments on the ML regarding the bug gets recorded in the bug report.

- Comments made in the bug report directly also get CC:d to the ML.

Been meaning to set up something like this for the Squid project for years 
now, just never seem to get around to it.. probably should just do it. 
Seems to be some useful scripts in bugzilla/contrib/

As you I do not think filing bugs via email is a good thing. Just attracts 
spam and garbage.
