It would be nice if the bug subscription feature could be done using the
original mail, perhaps by adding a "Subscribe: yes" pseudo-header. If
that header is there, the BTS could send the
nnn-subscribe@bugs.debian.org mail automatically as soon as it knows the
bug number. This would save the submitter from having to wait for the
ACK to arrive (giving them the bug number), and then sending the
subscription mail.

(I would prefer the BTS to default to "Subscribe: no", since this is
less surprising for people used to the system. reportbug could add the
header by default.)

A final finesse could be to allow the "Subscribe:" header to have either
"yes", "no", or an e-mail address to be subscribed.

I've never seen anyone wear a Freudian slip.
