This all already works without a developer account. If you e-mail a bug
to to bugs at darcs.net, it will be tracked by your e-mail address. If you
submit several bugs like this from the same e-mail address, they will
show up as related in the system.

When a developer replies to the ticket, you will get e-mail. When the
ticket is resolved, you will get e-mail. 

I think all those also works by setting the 'requestor' field to your
e-mail address in the web forms.
