Bug Description

Checkbox currently only recommends the python-apport package. If it is uninstalled, it will fail with the following traceback. Instead, it should make a best effort to use the apport.ui module only when it is available.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./run", line 40, in <module>
  File "./run", line 35, in main
    application = manager.create_application(sys.argv)
  File "/home/cr3/src/checkbox/trunk/checkbox/", line 142, in create_application
    return self.application_factory(config)
  File "/home/cr3/src/checkbox/trunk/checkbox/", line 53, in __init__
    self.reactor, self.registry)
  File "/home/cr3/src/checkbox/trunk/checkbox/", line 40, in __init__
    for module in section.load_modules():
  File "/home/cr3/src/checkbox/trunk/checkbox/", line 157, in load_modules
    module = self.load_module(name)
  File "/home/cr3/src/checkbox/trunk/checkbox/", line 112, in load_module
    exec open(filename) in globals
  File "./plugins/", line 21, in <module>
    from apport.ui import UserInterface
ImportError: No module named apport.ui
