The BTS already does the latter using X-Debian-PR-Package: $PACKAGE,
with mails regarding multiple packages separated by commas (possibly
followed by spaces) to the extent that it is possible to identify a
package associated with a bug report or actions taken on bug reports.

I will eventually be duplicating this information in an
X-Debian-Package: header as well, and adding an X-Debian:
bugs.debian.org header as well for convenience, but will be keeping
the existing PR headers intact for the forseeable future.
