You mean "mobile" as in "running on mobile hardware (PDAs)", as opposed 
to "mobile code"?

The best way to do this is to use a WWW library of some sort to make 
requests of the Bugzilla server, and receive the results back as HTML 
(for display) or RDF/XML (for further processing.)

The obvious way to plug into notifications is to have the software check 
for and display the bugmail that gets sent.
