Hi Sandro,

Here's my response to Thilo's explanation. Please re-open the 'bug' as my objection stands. (or otherwise let me know your response).
I really want to see reportbug become more user friendly, and am just trying to be helpful. This package has to be especially user-friendly in order not to discourage users an ANY level from reporting bugs and giving Debian feedback. For many users, reportbug will be the only feedback Debian will get, and if the app itself isn't smooth, it's a potential real turn-ff. Consider that a user usually only gets to report bug due to a frustration, and if reportbug itself is a source of frustration it could very well be 'the last straw' for that user.

Fair enough. But that isn't sufficient, because there is no indication to the user of the '?' option. The '?' option isn't even among either option lists. Additionally, having in-line documentation of the 'e' option and not anything for the '?' also would throw someone off.
