I guess I still do not understand.

Are you suggesting that `bugreport` would be unwelcome as a built-in? If
so, I would really like to know why. Because I think it would make for a
very fine built-in. I interact with users all the time, and a good tool to
provide good information to accompany a bug report is definitely something
that would improve the current situation.

Ciao,
