Couple of notes now that I'm more awake

1) We'd need to deal with logging-in to Bugzilla to access the
enter_bug.cgi page, which would complicate things
2) We'd need to update the url we pass to curl, etc..

Rob -- You mentioned something about wanting to switch to some direct
API into Bugzilla (instead of parsing x/html pages). Any further
thoughts on how difficult that would be?
