Frankly, there’s a limit to what can be done for the sake of backwards
compatibility. Such scripts will be an issue for the GTK+ frontend to
reportbug as well, and there is really not much point in asking
questions interactively.

From now on, I’d say we can either:
      * force such scripts to use an abstraction layer to prompt the
      * forbid explicit user interaction in the bug script, and use
        special cases for things like installation-reports.
