It is a reasonable feature to want, but primarily for the user, not
for the developers.

As much as I hate to register, log in and go through some extra loops
to report bugs in other people packages, I think that the issue is
quite different for a group of developers and the package they work on.

Your experience with GNATS seems to be different from mine.  But it is
quite irrelevant.  Even if the savannah bug tracking system would be
the worst out there I would ask you to cooperate in using it, or at
least not to flat out refuse it just because you are mildly
inconvenienced by it.  If you exclude yourself from this resource we
all lose.
