uses the emacs url library.

If mailing doesnt work, emacs could try posting the bug report through
a web form.

The benefit would be that as long as the emacs user has a working
internet connection, the bug-report would with a high degree of
reliability be delivered to the web server. 

The web server could then mail the report as usual to emacs bugs.

The drawback would be that there would have to be a webserver running
a mailer script, that would have to be high uptime, and maybe could be
