I'm willing to move the bug template location somewhere else; someone
(forgot who, I'm tired) proposes /usr/share/reportbug, but there's
nothing inherently reportbug-specific about those file (certainly bug
could support them too).  /usr/share/misc?  I dunno.

OTOH, the file does make some sense as standalone documentation for
people who don't use a bug reporting tool (which would trigger the
symlink clause).
