I'd actively say that we _don't_ want a web interface. If a
point-and-click manager can add custom fields, we've actually done that
company and all its Bugzilla users a big disservice, because their
Bugzilla will get less and less usable.
We have that problem at my company. Our home-grown issue tracker has
literally 40 fields, including three version fields.
