IMO, the Bugzilla Helper is unsuitable for anything other than a 
technology demo, because it is intentionally very Mozilla specific. I 
wouldn't want to change that, because one of the advantages of checking 
it in is that we can maintain the Mozilla version in Bugzilla CVS.

"Low-end" doesn't mean clueless end-users, it means people who hold the 
"bug entry is a starting point" view I outlined earlier in the thread.
