I see what feature you'd like Reportbug supports, but I'm not sure to
see if it is relevant, because either you provide an new content and a
copy is automatically sent to the sender (at least in the newer versions
of reportbug, don't know before that), either you are using --debug mode
and the bug report is only sent to the sender. In the first case using
X-Debbugs-CC to yourself, reportbug will redundantly send another copy
and in the second case, X-Debbugs-CC are ignored.
Please provide more information if I'm missing something.
