Munging the In-Reply-To: and References: headers in debbugs is really
not a good idea. That's something for the MUAs that people are using
to do properly. Fixing the mailto URLs as requested in #412815 will
help people using the web frontend do this correctly as well.

I'm not really sure what you're asking for here; you can easily
separate out the responses by bug or by almost any other metric to
make report reading more organized.
