No because the initial email would be sent to address@hidden or
address@hidden, not address@hidden.

There are also some control messages which are not sent to
address@hidden but are received by the Debbugs service through
other means.

I’m now getting the bug number by convention: mumi gets them from
Debbugs, stores them in a predictable fashion (<bugnum> dash <msgnum>),
and mumimu gets the bug number from that file name.

Since mumimu isn’t a general purpose tool we can get away with that if
we all just hold our noses and ignore the stench.
