( Not sure if this is the correct way to report this issue )

When bashbug is run, the email sent lands in public locations. It would be
great if it could warn about this. I'm not sure how intrusive this change
should be, or if meantioning it for -h, --help and in the documentation
would be enough.

I'm reporting this after someone coming to complain in #gnu.
