Not really.  Gnats is very flexible in this; it allows manual editing of
the bug report itself.  This is also one of its relatively annoying
'flaws' though.  Care must be taken when bug reports are manually
modified by a committer, and there are not very many tools to automake
stuff like what you wanted to do.

Anyway, I'm glad this has been resolved now :)
