I figure a patch could be provided for the right part of katie -- it already
knows NMUs (special case for not closing bugs), you just have to insert the
sending of mail with the right verbiage.

The latter, however, doesn't strike me as particularly obvious. What do you
tell the submitter? Do you recommend the upgrade, or just suggest it?
Do you mention it's a NMU, should they care? It's somewhat puzzling, as
there are NMUs of various qualities... Arguably, there are maintainer
uploads of various qualities, but given it's the official upload, the
"licence" to recommend it is implied, whereas with a NMU, it is not.
