[Reportbug-maint] Bug#574060: reportbug: Should make a backup/archive copy of bug reports under the user home dir

Package: reportbug
Version: 3.48
Severity: normal

I believe that the default configuration of reportbug should store copies of
all bug reports under ~/.reportbug/ (or something similar).  With the current
method of operation if there is a bug in the MTA that discards the mail then
you lose the bug report.  Saving it in /tmp is not adequate as a reboot clears
that out.
