Bug Description

 affects bzr
 status triaged

Adding this indirection is harmful to productivity as a developer. We
should show the output directly.

:!./bzr selftest --no-plugins selftest -v
bzr: ERROR: exceptions.SyntaxError: invalid syntax (test_selftest.py,
line 1810)

I agree, it probably should.

There are some cases where users run selftest and report the results, but even there most of the time they're going to send us selftest output not a crash report.

discussion in https://code.edge.launchpad.net/~mbp/bzr/417881-selftest-no-apport/+merge/18527 seems to indicate we should actually not fix this; developers should just set no_apport.
