Any chance of some sensible, limited aliasing here, to remove some of 
the historical warts from our field names? For example:

"summary" for "short_desc"
"platform" for "rep_platform"
"url" for "bug_file_loc"
"status" for "bug_status"
"severity" for "bug_severity"

No-one is going to know to use "bug_file_loc" for URL, for example...
