It was so that HTML rendered in Emacs would use Emacs to send the email,
instead of popping up a browser window.  Which often doesn't work, since
you need to have mail configured in your browser...

So report-emacs-bug tries to determine whether Emacs can send mail, and
if it can't, it tries to open a browser, in the hope that it knows how
to send mail?  In what situations does this occur?
