debbugsconfig needs some serious love, because it isn't completely
necessary anymore, and is generating configuration files with options
that are obsolete or not strictly necessary.
I personally don't use it at all, and would love to see a patch that
replaced it with a command which created a local mirror of the bts or
similar. [I'm only still distributing it because I assumed it has some
users, even though I don't use it.]
If you find it impossible to believe that the universe didn't have a
creator, why don't you find it impossible that your creator didn't
have one either?
