[Reportbug-maint] Bug#586680: Misnamed option --tls/smtptls with misleading docs and missing SMTP+TLS support

Further notes:

(1) There was an old issue that this flag should have been called 
--smtptls/smtptls for consistency. When making braking changes, perhaps 
this suggestion should be implemented?

(2) Auto-enabling SMTP+TLS on port 465 and SMTP+STARTTLS on port 587 
would enhance usability.

Many of the changes I have suggested break backwards compatibility with 
existing .reportbugrc and scripts.

Kind regards,
