how about a new function for the bts program of the devscripts package:
$ bts thankyou 123456
This could send a template message to email@example.com, which would
say something like "The maintainer is too busy to send a real answer,
but he saw your report and thanks you for sending it."
(one can imaging many other variants, such as bts dontcare, bts
onstrike, bts waitayear, ....)
Have a nice day,
