C API for Bugzilla

I've looked at the Redhat drop and it is using the Frontier module for
the XMLRPC. It looks like the XMLRPC calls are "thunked" with a thin
layer to a custom perl module that implements the XMLRPC function call

If the bugzilla concept of moving the heavy lifting into a library of
*.pm makes substantial progress with the essential API calls it
shouldn't be too difficult to add the XMLRPC layer using whatever
library as long as error handling back to the remote client is handled
intelligently. In selection of a library for implementing XMLRPC/SOAP
one might want to pick one compatible with the eventual creation of an
Eclipse plug-in.

Extending/merging Redhat's existing code or doing something equivalent
is still on my TODO list...
