There seem to be several solutions, however ideas I have are not
so good.  For example:

1. To make `report-emacs-bug' bind `gnus-posting-styles' to nil
   unconditionally while performing `compose-mail'.  It has to load
   gnus-msg.el, that provides `gnus-posting-styles', before binding
   it to nil if Gnus is not running yet even if `mail-user-agent'
   is not `gnus-user-agent'.  Otherwise, `gnus-posting-styles' will
   be made unbound.  Note that a function `gnus-user-agent' uses,
   that is `gnus-msg-mail', is autoloaded, and it involves many other
   Gnus modules loading.

2. Similar to 1.  But load gnus-msg.el and bind `gnus-posting-styles'
   to nil if and only if `mail-user-agent' equals `gnus-user-agent'.
   I think the source code for it will get ugly.

3. To make `gnus-msg-mail' bind `gnus-posting-styles' to nil if and
   only if `this-command' is `report-emacs-bug'.  It won't work if
   `report-emacs-bug' is called non-interactively.

My second best is 2.  What do others think?
