Aha! Thank you, and sorry. I was having trouble with the wiki the last 
couple of days, and couldn't add a 'taken' note, but it now seems to let 
me edit pages. I hope you didn't spend too long on it.

Hehe, thanks! I'm not that great at Javascript, but I did manage to 
write a couple of more general functions than what was there.

Ah, I do not know how to interact with bugzilla, so if you do then that 
would be wonderful. :) I was wondering about using an API in order to 
attach multiple files to a bug when the user clicks 'submit' -> things 
like the problem document, and screenshots. It would be very handy if 
you could work on that type of thing. :)
