At present, it will use whatever email address the control message
came from. If you change this, it's a (minor) incompatible change with
the way a standard debbugs installation works. It's probably doable,
but also this is something that would make it harder for non-Emacs
packages to use debbugs.gnu.org.

I think that would be an easy hack to debbugs, yes.
(just relax is_valid_user in Debbugs/User.pm ?)

Doesn't that Just Work at present?

Here is an example that returns a short search result, so as not to
overwhelm the server:

I think usertags don't work on the current server, yes.
(By default, debbugs fails to create the necessary directory to store
the usertags, so just silently fails to store them. I had to make the
directories by hand first.)
