Yea, would be possible. The first function could live in a file
debbugs-guix.el, the other two function might enter
debbugs-gnu.el. There's one formal restriction: debbugs is part of the
GNU ELPA repository, which requires the authors to give the copyright to
FSF, and to sign the legal papers. Would you be willing to do so?

I guess further discussion could happen on bug#56987.
