Is this a reoccurring discussion every few months?

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

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