Status in “sugar-0.88” package in Ubuntu: In Progress

Bug description:
Binary package hint: sugar-emulator-0.88

Description: Ubuntu maverick (development branch)
Release: 10.10
Package version: 0.88.1-2ubuntu1

Feature Request:
Add apport bug reporting support in sugar-automatic crash reporting and little icon in the frame to report bugs. 

Apport is a system which
* intercepts crashes right when they happen the first time,
* gathers potentially useful information about the crash and the OS environment,
* can be automatically invoked for unhandled exceptions in other programming languages 
* can be automatically invoked for other problems that can be automatically detected (e. g. Ubuntu automatically detects and reports package installation/upgrade failures from update-manager),
* presents a UI that informs the user about the crash and instructs them on how to proceed,
* is able to file non-crash bug reports about software, so that developers still get information about package versions, OS version etc.
