[Reportbug-maint] Bug#810933: Please support connecting to SMTP via a SOCKS proxy

Package: reportbug
Version: 6.6.6
Severity: wishlist

reportbug supports an HTTP proxy if set in the environment; however,
when it subsequently tries to submit the report, it tries to connect
directly to the specified SMTP server, and does not seem to support
using a proxy for that connection.

Please consider adding support for using a SOCKS proxy to connect to
reportbug.debian.org, and obtaining that proxy from the environment (via
the all_proxy environment variable, and respecting no_proxy).
