Does/can it have a tabulated view with various fields shown (like
whether patches are attached, number of comments, etc.)?

I'm with zmike that if the phabs have high barriers of access, I'm
uncertain it'll adequately replace bugzilla.

It might also be worthwhile to examine the email interface - in other
projects I've found phab a bit spammy with state change emails.

The command line interface is probably what I would end up using the
most though.  I know phab has one but haven't used it much.  I seem to
recall being frustrated by it but don't remember why; like it was
squashing my patches or something.  Maybe it can be tuned though.
