[Reportbug-maint] Bug#621505: Missing "pseudo_header" option in reportbug.conf / .reportbugrc

Package: reportbug
Version: 4.12.6
Severity: wishlist


I have chroots for testing multiarch and cross-compiling. Since any
problems I encounter and report there are nearly always related to
multiarch or cross-compiling I would like to add the relevant User
and/or Usertags pseudo header by default. This could be achieved by

  alias reportbug="reportbug -P 'Usertags: multiarch' $@"

but I think it would be nicer to support this also in the
reportbug.conf and .reportbugrc by adding a "pseudo_header" option
analog to the header option already present.
