Sure you can.  `C-u / patch' in debbugs-gnu.

This can all be done by adding tags to bug reports in debbugs.

That sounds nice, but 99% of patches in the bug tracker are small and
need only a couple passes or less before they can be applied.  So this
would give us no extra patch handling power in reality.
