I know this is gonna be flamed down, but I'm feelin' brave today so
let's try it anyway:

     4) put an reportbug-ng icon on the desktop by default on every
        fresh installation

I know this smells like the classic AOL-Button on every Windows-Desktop,
but with our *users* in mind, it might be worth a try -- post-etch of
course and when reportbug-ng is stable enough.
