Nice to know. Until now I was under the impression that a bug can only
be assigned to exactly one package at any given time. This is a very
useful feature. Nevertheless the correct command probably is 

reassign bugnumber package1,package2

Or is there another undocumented feature that the control bot can guess
the correct bug number from the other recipients of the mail?
