grep 'Subject: ITP:' /org/bugs.debian.org/spool/db-h/NN/MMMMNN.summary.  If
you want, you could also match up the source package name.

Now you'll say that's not reliable.  Maybe not, but a pretty strong indication
and very few misdirected mails won't hurt anybody if he chose a not so useful
bug title.
