The problem isn't with the interface changing, but rather with it making
what I need to do impossible. I'm using Gerv's suggestion to use id_XXX
(simulating a mass change) and it works fine for now; hopefully, the
same facility will be offered when process_bug changes by some HTTP (or
XML-RPC, if that's where we will end up) interface script that can be
used by software without access or permission to access the bugzilla
database directly.
