[Popcon-developers] Should we patch popcon to send emails even without an MTA?

The advantage I see is providing those without a working MTA with an
option they can live with.

Well, I suspect we might we some more reports from some of the smaller
archs, but I do not know this.  Some of their administrators seem very
eager to submit popcon reports. :)

Adding the option will give us more experience, so we can consider
making it easier to enable later.
