send-pr normally just drops you into $EDITOR on the template; the only
question it ever asks me is after I exit the editor, when it wants to
know whether I want to send, re-edit, or abort....

It also doesn't have to be run on the NetBSD machine.  (This seems
obvious, since it's just a shell script, but I've seen three or four
people saying things like "I'd use send-pr, but the NetBSD machine is
not on the net".)  Indeed, I run send-pr on my home machine (the one I
handle all my mail on), which is not - yet - running NetBSD.
