Allow automatic error reporting to Codeplex projects

Even though I try my best, from time to time an application breaks somewhere. I have an error reporting button which opens CodePlex, but the user is required to be logged in to report an error. This is difficult because most users of the applications we build will ultimately not be CodePlex users. I would love to see an option to automatically populate fields in the issue reporting page using something like querystring fields, or perhaps even the webservice API. Also, unauthenticated users should be able to report errors, based on the preference of the individual project. This will allow me to build a better error reporting mechanism an hence I can expect more issues to be flowing in. I think all project would be able to benefit from this.
