I wrote a such script a while ago,
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=205416 . It is mostly
useable, however there are two minor problems:

 - the mail text is hardcoded (edit it in the script or write some code
   to read it from a file)
 - the Subject: is not running trough the substition code, the last time
   I used it it has unfortunately sent mails with __BUGNR__ (an obvious
   fix required)
