That was possible with the reportbug tool, indeed I make use of it for
my 3rd party .debs, but reportbug does not work with lp. Once I tell
people about reportbug, they usually use it to send me bug reports, and
it brings all the useful information with it thanks to my script, eg
logs, cpu & opengl info. If wanted I could share my bash scripts, but
they are trivial to make ( cat foo >> bar )

That functionality would be nice to have for Ubuntu packages as well.
