That's the missing piece, obviously.

BTW, I didn't want to say that one could entirely replace a bug-tracking system
with tracking the LKML archives. What I wanted to say was that the email
messages sent to the LKML were easily trackable and could be hooked up into a
bug-tracking system, for example with the help of URLs.

In such a setup people could send initial reports to the LKML and the links to
these messages might be put into a bug-tracking system as soon as it turned
out that the bugs were worthy of tracking.
