I think the email functionality may be useful in the future, but right now I
want to create a new issue from a Flash module or an html page.
Tracking the reporter of the issue doesn't seem like a problem to me since
our system requires users to be logged in, so that will already be taken
Junk issues don't seem like a problem either, since the issue will still
have to be submitted. I just want load the "create issue" page and
pre-populate a few fields.
