alright, here goes. 

the patch is at http://divisionbyzero.com/op_sys.patch and is against
cvs HEAD.

this does the following:

-adds a op_sys table
-removes the enum op_sys column in bugs
-adds a op_sys_id column in bugs (which points to op_sys.id)

checksetup.pl will create + populate the new table for you. everything
i've tried (new bugs, queries, changing, reports) has worked fine with
this code. 

feedback is requested.
