But possible. :)

Uses, recent versions do not require many pages of questions
if it is first run.
Looks at CPAN even if module is not core module. is loaded
only if necessary. As does not load modules to look for
version, serious problems in module will not harm reporting.

Also moved question "Is your report about a Perl module?" to a better
place, before question about editor - in this case it wouldn't be

This patch is good for 5.8.9 (if is updated there), 5.10.1 and
5.11. Tested only on 5.11.

P.S. IMHO perlbug on 5.8.9 should mention perl 5.10 at start.
