How about just providing a new level of indexing:
if a bug has more than, say, three mails it contains an index of
mails (with two or three first lines, so eventually regulars
will all relevant info to subject and first lines).
This index could be at the start of current data (so minimal
change to current system) or sole contents (so is fast).
It could be added when updates come to bugs, so no massive
update for bug files would be needed.
I would say that providing index either at the beginning or
separately should solve everyones problems. After that
anybody can read forward or backward or inside out
or whatever way they like without imposing their choise on
