It would be cool if the BTS notices bounces from the acknowledgement
report it sends upon receipt of a bug report, and in that case at the
least makes a note of that fact (in extreme cases, where one address
reports a number of bugs and it always bounces, the bugs could be moved
to the bozo bin; good in case of spam, for example).
