Ah ha!  I didn't know that feature was enabled.  This is very good news!

(I guess I should have tried it -- I've been running my own GNATS server
for quite a few years now and using only the e-mail interface.  Thank
you very much for reminding me about it!)

There may be some FreeBSD backend tools that are kept private, but so
far I've never found any example of such a tool -- everything I've ever
wanted to look for is right there on their CVS server.  I suspect the
complaints are from people who don't know where to look, though I can't
say I've ever seen any such complaints or even looked for them.
