Actually, it would be best to start by identifying the places where
adding new hooks to Bugzilla makes it easier to tie in functionality
that the standard Bugzilla does not want. The addition of templates,
modular authentication, template hooks, template plugins, etc... all
move the underlying Bugzilla project in a direction that makes it easier
to do this sort of thing.
Aside from a few custom fields and some template changes, I suspect that
one of the major things needed for work items is to have a stronger
sense of workflow. This is something that is useful to the core
Bugzilla project as well.
Let's look for the common parts before focussing in the parts that diverge.
