If you remember, this feature of your patch was actually one of the 
biggest issues people had with it at review - it duplicated a lot of 
Bugzilla function, both in terms of code and tables. For example, 
applying the patch gives one two tables full of bug activity data...

But re-reviewing your patch is probably not the point of this thread.
