Yes there are all sorts of workarounds (save the reportbug file, remembering to fish it out of /tmp before a reboot loses it all), cut and paste into working email on some other box, run reportbug elsewhere (risk of wrong package metadata) etc. But none of it feels like a good use of developer time.
An http (or scp?) transport would be really useful.
Ubuntu's apport-cli which does an initial contact over http to initiate a report and lets you fill the rest in online is very useful in these situations, even if I much prefer a nice email report over clicking about in launchpad. I'd really appreciate an easy way of sending in bugreps from places where SMTP is not available/configured.
