All the above could be handled at the level of git directly with the
changes suggested in #58813, so I'd suggest we do this, which benefits
everyone/everything relying on it.

But I think something extra that mumi send-email could do, which git
can't (because it doesn't fetch the existing thread data), would be to
CC all parties that have already commented in the corresponding thread
(if the issue already exists).  I think this is what John was going at.

Thanks for this nice tool!
