If you tell me how it can be extracted from the data supplied in the
CVSNT invocation of CVSMailer....

Notice that this is similar also to the requests I have had to put
branch tags in teh subject etc. THe problem is that every single file
being committed can have a different tag and I guess a different
bugid. So which one should be put in the subject?

However there is a case for putting bugid:s on the individual file
name line in the *body* of the email. Problem is I have never used the
bugid so I don't know how to extract it or how to handle it generally.
Code changes will for sure be needed in CVSMailer to do this...
