Why? He wants "the first thing the user sees" to be their buglist 
(however a particular person might define "my buglist".) The obvious 
answer is "set your buglist as your homepage."

Currently, going to the root of a Bugzilla installation gives you a page 
with an overview of all the stuff you can do. This is sane, and the 
Expected Thing. If people don't want that, there are five-lines-of-code 
ways to change it (adding a redirect at the top of index.cgi, with the 
particular business logic you want to decide what "my buglist" is.)

There are a load more bugs in the database whose effects are much more 
dumb than this one.
