        For Debian, there already is an emacs interface to send in bug
 reports, debian-bug, based on reportbug.

;; Useful commands provided by this mode:
;; debian-bug         - submit a bug report concerning a Debian package
;; debian-bug-web-bug - view a bug report on a web browser (via browse-url)
;; debian-bug-wnpp    - submit a Work Needed on Prospective Package bug report
;; debian-bug-request-for-package
;;                    - shortcut for a WNPP bug type.
;; debian-bug-ITP     - shortcut for a WNPP bug type
;; debian-bug depends on either the bug package or the reportbug (>1.21)
;; package for best results.

        reportbug collects information not only from the local system,
 but from the BTS itself, but perhaps we can pull in the functionality
 into elisp.
