Git for Windows sometimes receives bug reports about Bash not being able
to start (usually it is a DLL base address problem, related to the way
Cygwin and MSYS2 emulate `fork()`).

In such a case, `git bugreport` would only be able to offer a reason for
yet another bug report instead of adding useful metadata.

Something to keep in mind when deciding how to implement this command.
