We're thinking of doing something similar.  I was 'planning' on using
CommandbyMail and have the app put the username information on the
outgoing e-mail into RT.  So the webform would ask for name, e-mail,
problem.  The e-mail submitted to RT would look something like:

Requestor:theirName at domain.com
Description: the problem they typed above

And so on.  That's what we were thinking anyway, unless there's a reason
why this can't be done??
