How do you "enter" a bug report using an MTA???

I think you mean you use an editor to edit it first, which IMHO is a
very primitive implementation of an MUA. ie, you can't edit the
message to add a 'X-Debbugs-CC' header, for instance. Nor can you add
MIME attachments either (not that the BTS really supports MIME
messages properly, but IMHO thats another bug).
