[racket-dev] bug reports: include prefs file?

Or you could make it opt-in, and have a disclosure by the button that 
preferences file contains private info.  People who are concerned won't 
click the button, or they will go find the file and check before 
deciding.  This gets you out of writing any GUI for viewing the data.  
(Maybe you provide a button to open the file in DrRacket.)

Or, if you're adding info from various sources, rather than having 
special GUI for each like now, collect all the info, put it in one big 
text field, and people can look at it just as they'd look at at the 
free-form text they write describing the problem.  I think there has 
actually been implementation work in the past to hide this information, 
when exposing it might have been quicker to implement.
