I'm planning to implement the 'reportbug' Python package, by moving 
the 'reportbug' program to a separate directory to avoid that name 
conflict. I think that the expected package name for reportbug modules 
will be the name 'reportbug', so it's worth choosing that name if 

That is, the 'reportbug' program would be stored in the project 
working tree in 'bin/reportbug'; the top-level 'reportbug/' directory 
would be the 'reportbug' Python package; and the 'debianbts' module 
would be imported as 'reportbug.debianbts'.

Does this seem worthwhile? I'd like to work with you, Chris, before 
you go too far along the road of a package named 'dreportbug'.
