Changing flags on multiple bugs at once.

I am trying to upgrade to Bugzilla 1.18 right now, and looking at how 
best to utilize the flags capabilities.  I want to be able to see the 
flags on a report, and to change multiple flags at once.

I have come up with a patch that lets me see flags in the reports, 
adding columns for Flags+, Flags-, and Flags?  and displaying in those 
columns all flags in the respective categories.

However the problem of changing multiple flags at a time is more 
elusive.  Furthermore, i would like to be able to query on flags.

I am lead to wonder if I am approaching this in the wrong way.  I had 
been using keywords, however the main problem with keywords is that 
someone has to type them in, and there isn't a convenient 
selection/picker for it.  Neither is there a way to put any restriction 
on some keywords apply to some products and not others.

Any ideas here?
