We've had such discussions in the past.  It would probably be useful to
look at the archives of this list.  I can't find the actual thread right
now, but I do remember people talking about the approaches they are

In general, people do it manually because Launchpad doesn't provide
anything else.  I.e. they copy-paste strings into emails and then
comment inline.  Launchpad has a bunch of bugs filed about making this
much easier, but not much has happened there because of lack of
development resources.

Yeah, making this all possible from within Launchpad would be best.  It
does take a lot of effort to implement properly.  Since Launchpad is
open-source, we'd also welcome any help in implementing by anyone who is
able to deal with some coding :)
