Potential contribution: owner exchange

We are using bugzilla for packaging projects, such as PLF (plf.zarb.org)
or jpackage (jpackage.org). I developped a specific script to allows
packagers to drop and pick maintainership of their packages, and the
code is available at

I'd be happy to contribute it upstream, but there is a slight problem: I
cheated with default bugzilla database model, where only product have
version, and only components have owners. I mapped packages to product,
and use ghost components with the same owner to achieve something more
adapted to our needs.

So, I guess it is a bit too much specific to be interesting directly,
but if there is any interest, I think I'd have just to change the SQL
queries to make it suitable.

BTW, is there any provision for people that like to use non-standard
database model for specific purposes ?
