That's subjective, but for example I don't want to be required to configure an SMPT server to report a bug. Especially when being behind a firewall.

Why do you need to configure a SMTP server? All you need to be able to do is send an e-mail to the bug tracker (from anywhere!) and include a "Package: foo" and "Version: 1.2.3" line at the top of the the body. Anything else, such as using the reportbug tool directly on the system with the problem, is useful, but certainly not necessary.

Also note that reportbug doesn't require an SMTP server these days anyway; it can send mail directly to the BTS's SMTP server.
