[Reportbug-maint] reportbug patch for windows

Attached is a patch for reportbug (querybts) to make it run on Windows.
There are 2 modules, pwd and tempfile, which are platform dependent, not 
available on Windows. These 2 modules are only needed for the reportbug tool 
and are not required for a query to the BTS.

I have a plain patch to just handle imports for these 2 modules. Another 
option could be to separate platform specific modules to a separate file.

Why this should be done?
I have an application, pypt-offline, an offline package manager for Debian. One of 
the core features for it is to be able to download bug reports and make it 
available offline.
I'd like to use reportbug for my app's bug fetch requirement because reportbug 
is the most used bts tool in Debian and thus the best maintained. :-)
