Ok, I need to step back a bit, and make my self clear.
I just want to be able to file a bug on a package... its just a package that is both in Archive and PPA. but the version on my system comes from the PPA.

Exactly. The bug should go somewhere. And that place is the PPA BTS, _if it exists_.
If it doesnt let apport fail as it currently does. But if there is a PPA for package FOO, why not redirect the apport collected data to that PPA BTS?

Am I making such an hard question, or using the wrong example?
