As in "how come it's changed so much from the default in Bugopolis?" or 
"How come it's so complicated/powerful?"

Now, basically unlimited, within the Product/Component 2-level limitation.

Have you tried the patch on bug 16009? ;-) It's still quite rough around 
the edges, but I'm looking to polish it up RSN.

Yes. The problem is that it's still not possible, quite, to do a full 
localisation without changing code - we still haven't sorted out all the 
edge cases, and things like mail. There's a 12xxxx bug I have to review 
to that end.

As of last week, yes :-)

The admin options are going to get tabbified if I have anything to say 
about it. But, as for the query page, if you want something simpler, use 
a custom template, removing the options your users don't use.
