So you want each of these reports to be available for each individual 
product you have?

One way to do this would be to add links to the Edit Product page - but 
that would be in the wrong place semantically, and it would mean only 
admins could get to them.

Another way would be to make a page.cgi page (I believe page.cgi is 
documented; if not, read it - it's only a few lines) which dynamically 
generated a load of links for you based on the current product list.
