Actually, there is another issue that is potentially a lot worse.

"git bugreport" not being built-in would mean that the compiled-in
git-version MUST not be relied upon (it merely is a version of the
source "git bugreport" came from, it does not necessarily match the
main "git" binary when we are dealing with a confused user with
GIT_EXEC_PATH problem), but has to be asked to "git" binary on the
$PATH externally.  That needs to be done for any non-builtin
binaries (e.g. when user is having issue with git-remote--curl")
anyway, keeping "git bugreport" out of builtin would force us the
necessary discipline from early on.
