I think Gerv and you are both partially right on this issue, but this 
doesn't really satisfy either of your requirements.  Advanced users want 
more options on the page, but that doesn't mean all options will make 
them more productive.

I'd like to see the Bugzilla Helper take over the low end and a smarter 
form (with the most frequently requested fields) deal with the rest. 
 This could include removing (or automatically setting) fields from the 
current form that aren't frequently used.
