The bug reporting commands also report the settings of variables.  If
the general Emacs bug reporting command were to include the values of
all existing subsystems, we would get wagonloads of useless
information.  Also, subsystems often have their own bug reporting
lists and maintainers.

If we want to let everything go by report-emacs-bug, we would need
ways to have specific reports be generated where all active minor
modes have a way to make their variables known, and the major mode
also can specify his own variables and bug reporting addresses.  If
the addresses clash for several active subsystem, Emacs would have to
ask about which system it should report.

Post-22 stuff, if at all.

However, we should probably encourage some conventions.  I have here:
