What I personally think is: why don't merge reportbug-ng into
reportbug? I explain better.

I don't know what rb-ng has more that rb except for a "nicer" gui than
urwid: both are python, both aim to report a bug against a package.
Since reportbug born earlier, and if the differences between them are
"small" enough, maybe it would be work to integrate them in rb and
expand it to include a "modern" gui.

I intentionally not included Bastian (rb-ng maintainer) because I'd
like to hear from you about it.
