   If you are using access groups for products, you will need to use 
2.17.* which permits an arbitrary (well, 32000 anyway) groups.

   Your categorization issue will require a bit of hacking, but I do 
have a crude patch (against 2.17.1-ish code) that adds a field called 
"Menugroup" to the product.  When a user creates a bug, if they would be 
able to enter bugs into products with more than one distinct menugroup, 
then they are prompted to first select which menugroup.  There are no 
descriptions for the menugroups, but the names themselves can be 
descriptive.  If you start down the 2.17 path and want this, I can dust 
it off and provide it to you.  Since I would have to update it to the 
current tip, please get your other steps out of the way before asking me 
for this.
