An Emacs interface would be great, but you still need a fall-back
interface for when the bug or the environment blocks the operation of
the Emacs interface.

There are plenty of bad examples for everything, even for Emacs
interfaces :-)

Emacs-based of web-based, such an interface can do smart things that
brings a friendlier experience than a plain-text e-mail system does. (Of
course an Emacs-based interface is much better because it can
automatically provide lots of information by introspection.)
