Heya, thanks a lot for working on the reportbug part of this!

Executive summary: feel free (you, or anyone else interested in Perl
hacking) to change the CGI script as you see fit. I really care about
offering users the ability to use HTTP as a transport, possibly as the
*default* transport, for bug reports because I'm convinced that SMTP is
a real blocker for many users.  But I don't think I'll be hacking again
on this CGI in the near future; if it's easier for you, feel even free
to rewrite in something non-Perl-ish.

Either way, coordinating with Don to have something he'll be happy to
integrate in debbugs proper seems like the best way forward (and maybe
that means sticking to Perl? dunno...).

Thanks for your interest in this, I really appreciate!
