We AdminCC our support queue to a mailbox for safety reasons (then if RT
goes down for whatever reason we have a record we can quickly get to).

If you did this, and altered the Comment AdminCC template to not put
[Comment] in the subject line, then you could see the entire ticket as a
single thread in mutt (or your favourite MUA). Then it'd be trivial to
tag that and pull it into another mailbox (or you could just read the
mailbox in there).

I'm not aware of a script to do it, but that might be quicker.
