Should reportbug have a GUI?

I don't really like the TUI interface of reportbug. I understand it, and I've used it before, but I don't care for it. First off, it's not user friendly. It took me a moment to use it and make sure I was using it correctly. Second, I would have preferred to use a point-and-click method in order to configure mail settings. Third, I would much prefer a better way to communicate what kind of bug issues I'm having with drop-down boxes and text boxes.

In a sense, it would be a good thing. For example, people wouldn't be deterred from reporting a current Debian Sid bug as much. I didn't feel like talking about an abiword bug, even though I could have reported it days before someone else did. That's because I didn't like playing with the reportbug TUI.

Do any of you think there should be a GUI for reportbug?
