Probably easier: add a CGI-like interface to reportbug, and open a
browser on it?  Since it *is* reportbug, it can continue grabbing
whatever information is relevant using its scripts.  And then it's a
matter of a menu entry (or a big fat icon) running "reportbug --http &
sensible-browser http://localhost:$some-port/";.  AJAX to taste, then
submit via local or remote SMTP.
