Bug description:
  whoopsie was built with two settings, report_metrics (statistics like
  popcon - currently unused) and report_crashes (for reporting crash
  reports to the Error Tracker). However, only report_metrics gets
  written to '/etc/whoopsie' while the setting for report_crashes is
  defined by having whoopsie.disable. This complicates matters as there
  are two places to look for whoopsie settings '/etc/whoopsie' and
  checking for a .disable file. It'd be best if "report_crashes" was
  also written to '/etc/whoopsie'.
