group keywords

Hey, all.

I've been asked to implement group keywords on our local Bugzilla and
thought this would be a good opportunity to resolve bug #167017.
I'm not sure on how to implement this, though, and wanted to get input
from other people. My thoughts (or lack thereof):

- Global keywords would be entered via editkeywords.cgi, the way they are now
- per-Group keywords, via editgroups.cgi (??)
- per-User keywords would be done via editsettings.cgi

There'ld be a namespace for all of this via a field in the keywords table.

One thing I'm having trouble with is multiple occurences of the same word.
How do I allow people to distinguish global keywords and group keywords ?
How do I handle the case where somebody is a member of two groups, both of
whom have the same keyword defined ?

Comments, anyone ?
