Thanks for the hints.  Gervase Markham mentioned:

It depends what you mean by an XML-RPC interface. Even today, you can 
send HTTP GET requests to Bugzilla to make it do things, and often get 
the results (e.g. of buglists, or bugs) back as XML.

Is this documented anywhere?  I saw the xml.cgi, and it looks like a good interface to get
a single bug in xml, but how would you get a list / query in xml.  And is there any way to get
a list of the different parameters, etc.  I once wrote a program that logged into bugzilla, so
I'm pretty sure that I could write an interface that can submit the correct values, but is
there any way to get the results in a non-html format?  xml.cgi should work for a single bug,
but how about doing queries?  If you do have these things, this is all I would need.  I could
write a simple Java library to access a remote bugzilla server.
