Aha! So this is where it started! I'd like to make a suggestion to the
script that was used for this task: If someone retitles an ITP bug from
ITP to ITP, ignore that, and don't consider said person for the
owner. (Or at best, warn the calling user to double-check).

It shouldn't be hard to do that, and if someone points me to the script,
I'd be happy to submit a patch, if it is in a sane language.
