[Reportbug-maint] Bug#571970: reportbug: Please support reporting against $package_$version

Package: reportbug
Version: 4.10.2
Severity: wishlist


it'd be very nice if one could just pass $package_$version to reportbug;
especially useful since that's what we get in buildd logs. That together
with a solution to #560230 (maybe through a command line switch) would
really be useful.

Thanks for considering.
