But this would be only for getting reports or query outputs, correct?  
What about posting data to enter a new bug or to register or logon?  
What if you don't want to use the current bugzilla authentication method 
but rather your own method and simply want to post data or retrieve data 
from calling the command line on the backend and not from http 
requests.  I'm thinking like Marcel, it looks like the easiest option is 
to simulate a browser with curl possibly since the bugzilla code doesn't 
seem to lend itself to an API yet.
