If anyone's taken a peek at Bugzilla in CVS recently (even in the 2.17.3
tarball) you'll notice a Bugzilla directory that contains a whole mess of
*.pm files (perl modules).  Bugzilla is, piece by piece, getting the entire
back end moved into OOP modules.  The *.cgi scripts are little by little
becoming nothing but a front-end UI to the perl modules.  It won't be too
much longer and we'll have enough of the back end put into those perl
modules that you'll be able to write standalone perl scripts on the command
line that can use Bugzilla without having to know what the database looks
like or even what database it's using.
