It's an attempt to reduce the massive mail duplication that existed
before, when people kept replying to nnn@ and bug-gnu-emacs.

Is the right thing to do:

1) When I reply to nnn@, the mail that debbugs sends out should have
neither MFT nor RT in the headers. Then people can just followup as

2) When I send a new mail to bug-gnu-emacs or submit@, the new report
that goes out should either:

a) Have MFT set to nnn@, and no RT header (same as at present, bug
remove RT).

b) Have To: set to nnn@ rather than bug-gnu-emacs. (I think this is
