err, it's not (or not so well):

1. reportbug -O --template checkgmail > /tmp/morph
2. reportbug --ui gtk2 --debug -O -i /tmp/morph checkgmail

1. generated a template report body and 2. should uses it but:

- present me all the pre-body question, I've already answered before
- the "Other sys info" contains the same information

dunno, the same behaviour happens in text ui, so it's up to gtk2 ui to
play with input file, if you want it to be user friendly. of course,
we can even take into account the situation where a simple file is
passed as -i option
