I object filing FTBFS automatically. In some cases, the FTBFS is a failure
from one of the build-dependencies and filing bugs automatically would
lead to lots of useless/duplicate bugs. Thus a I think that a human filter
here is most welcome.

Lucas is covering this quite well up to now. If we ever get back to the
situation where nobody is willing to do that work, then we can reconsider
this. Also, how would you check that a bug has not already been filed
manually by another user?

Note however, I have no problem with a bot filing bugs based on functional
tests that people might have added to their packages.
