We used to have bugzilla emails *not* go to the list and there was a
fair number of bugs filed that I never knew about and that went under
the radar. Since we've set up the current configuration I've cc'ed
myself to a few bugs which I've had interest in following thanks to
the initial email going to the list.

I guess I don't care much if emails go to public-html or to
public-html-robots, but I'll note that it's also fairly easy to set up
a filter that deletes/moves emails from bugzilla that are going to
public-html.
