When I use Gnus as my MUA, I leave the user options
gnus-suppress-duplicates and gnus-save-duplicate-list at their default
value of nil, as I have not yet run into any issues with duplicate

After using debbugs.el, however, I noticed that the value of these two
user options had been changed, and a file called 'suppression' had
appeared under my gnus-directory.  I think this was caused by a change
to debbugs-read-emacs-bug-with-gnus[1].

I don't know what sort of issues gave rise to this change, but it would
be nice if debbugs.el could do its job without permanently changing the
value of user options from other packages.
