I've taken a look at reportbug and it looks like you are right. I also 
don't see a simple solution for this.

In that case I suggest that we disable the option to include syslog, 
messages and partman in the bug report and just request those files from 
the submitter if we need them. We can then also request the submitter to 
gzip them.

It also seems useful to add functionality to reportbug allowing a 
maintainer to specify attachments to be included (with compression 
optional or size dependent), although this should probably only be done 
after asking the user if that's OK.
Post Etch I will think on an implementation for this and file a wishlist 
BR against reportbug. We can then possibly properly include attachments 
again post-etch.
