I've been thinking about this, and I'm not sure whether this is
necessary. Sure, the UI for marking a bug as affecting you should
change so that it requires less interaction (and it is changing), but
if we make it possible for you to mark the bug as affecting you
without going to a new page, it means that we won't be able to offer
you a choice whether to subscribe or not. Bugs that you mark as
affecting you are potentially also bugs with higher volume of traffic,
and I think many people would rather not subscribe to them because
they rather not receive a lot of mail.
Tough question - it would be great to hear more opinions.
