I'm most of the way along with a branch that has the following

    Move all non-program modules into a Python package directory,
    'reportbuglib/', and ensure all imports still work.

Now, 'reportbuglib' may not be the best choice of name, but the name
should be relatively simple to change later if we decide to. It also
avoids the concerns raised earlier about a package named 'reportbug'
and a program of the same name.

This branch doesn't do anything about moving *programs* around; they
will still be testable in-place. Nor does it address the "use
distutils" or "use setuptools" ideas. It's intended to be a minimal
change, to meet the above limited goal.

I expect to have this branch ready to merge into trunk fairly soon.
Does anyone have any objection to me doing so?
