A GUI version of reportbug might be handy for those people who are
frightened by monospace fonts, but the only people who would need a web
interface would be people who don't have mail setup on their Debian
machines.  The problem with a web interface is that people would be inclined
to bloat the thing into a Bugzilla-like monstrosity, and probably put
web-only features into the thing -- and I *like* the ability to easily
manipulate bugs via e-mail, dammit.
