how about the other way round then:

 - by default everything stays as it is and there is no auto subscription
 - by sending an email to the bts I can activate that I'm automatically
   subscribed to all bugs I submitted or contributed (maybe separately

Would this not make both camps happy: those who would like to autosubscribe to
the bugs they file or contribute to and those who rather want to individually
subscribe to each bug report?
