Bug#184983: Fix title and the feasibility of actually fixing this bug

retitle 184983 [bugreport.cgi] add xml output support to bugreport.cgi
tag 184983 wontfix

Just for the record, providing XML support (or indeed any marginally
sane output format from the log files) is almost impossible without
totally changing the way the log files are done.

Moreover, I've no idea how to sanely parse the mail messages
themselves into something more useful than we're ouputing now without
completely losing all of the information.

I'm tagging it wontfix, not because it's a bad idea, but just because
it's something that will be almost impossible to actually implement

[Now, if there's something specific that you want to do with the XML
data, I'd be glad to look at modifying bugreport.cgi or pkgreport.cgi
to do that.]
