Depends on what exactly you are looking for...
* that feature relies on finding a valid bugid in the subject, if it
finds one it will add the email ass a comment
* if you would prefer something like nnnnnn-bug(at)tracker(dot)postgresql(dot)org
for adding to existing bugs, that would be a trivial thing to add as a
feature(have the MTA split the localpart and pass it as a parameter in
the pipe-transport to the email_in.pl script)
* the challenge is more about creating "new" bugs, because for that you
need a bz account (or maybe a community account in our case) by default.
We could certainly modify the feature so that it will autocreate bz
accounts as soon as we see a new emailaddress sending email in but that
will be fairly hard to control spamwise.
