Script to help users to report a BUG

Hi all,
what do you think about this simple idea of a script that could help
users to fill better BUG reports ?

The usage is quite simple, put the attached file in
/usr/src/linux/scripts and then:

[root@frodo scripts]# ./ /tmp/BUGREPORT/
cat: /proc/scsi/scsi: No such file or directory

[root@frodo scripts]# ls /tmp/BUGREPORT/
cpuinfo.bug ioports.bug modules.bug software.bug
iomem.bug lspci.bug scsi.bug version.bug

Now you can simply attach all the .bug files to the bugzilla report or
inline them in a email.

The script is rude but it is enough to give you an idea of what I have in mind.

Any comment ?
