I think the theory is that a non-technical user who reports a bug
might not be interested in reading a lot of mail where scary geeks
throw incomprehensible jargon at each other while they figure out
how to fix the problem.

On the other hand, I do not think that most of the bugs in our BTS are
reported by non-technical users. 

Henning Makholm                         "This imposes the restriction on any
                                  procedure statement that the kind and type
                             of each actual parameter be compatible with the
                       kind and type of the corresponding formal parameter."
