That more or less means having a particular message in the bug log be
the "summary", so adding:

	Summary-Mail: 6

to db-h/nn/nnnnnn.summary, a -summary alias that updates the Summary-Mail
field to that mail's number, and probably a "summary <bug> <msg>" control
command as well. Presumably Summary-Mail: should either default to unset
(there is no summary), or the initial bug report.

Not sure what the display should look like. It could be just a link
to the particular message, or it could be the entire summary message
separated by <hr>'s or similar, or it could be the first paragraph or
n lines of the summary message.

In that case it'd probably be good for the summary messages themselves
to be considered "boring".
