Process X- mail headers?

I wonder if it would be possible toi make patchwork process X- mail
headers on incoming messages?

I find it a continuous nuissance to have to use two different tools
(mailer and patchwork) and perform the same actions twice:

- I send a reply to the submitter of a patch oin the mailing list,
  then I have to mark it as "Changes Requested" or "Rejected" in PW.
- I apply a patch and send the submitter an ack, then I change it's
  state in PW
- I submit a patch where I know exactly which maintainer is
  responsible for, then I change the owner in PW
etc. etc.

It would be nice if I was able to just add some mail headers like

	X-PW-STATE: ChangesRequested
	X-PW-Delegate: maintainer at some.address


I am ware that permission checking might be an issue, but such a
feature would greatly improve my efficiency...

Any chances?
