my problem with anonymous bug reports is that if you have to ask for
more details to the reporter you're screwed, and if the bug report is
vague to say the least you have to guess and search by yourself - it's
more work for you and it's annoying.

but i'd implement anonymous bug reports with a bug report template or
accept any other idea that tries to solve this problem.

(also as of today the registration is immediate, no mail confirmation
required and i think mtjm enabled openid)

i personally prefer the irc channel for casual bug reporting
