The Nagios plugin is just merging after the fact based on Subject.
You could do the same thing using your subjects.  Just write a Scrip
which On Create looks for an existing ticket with the Subject and
merges (or calls SetStatus('deleted')).

If you're feeling ambitious, write a MailPlugin that transparently
adds the mail to the existing ticket, or does something else with it.

Heck, you could filter at the mail level using bin/rt to search for
tickets and blackhole mail from getting to RT if you find tickets with
the same subject.
