	I agree with you there--they shouldn't. In fact, I was going to
file a bug on that one day, so that we didn't have to keep fixing $ENV
for non-tainted scripts.

	However, Bugzilla.pm, as useful as it is, is intended to be
used by Bugzilla code only. And it's certainly not intended to be
subclassed. :-)

	If you could show us an example extension (the whole code of
it, somewhere online) that you feel could benefit from certain
enhancements to Bugzilla, that would be helpful in our seeing how
people want to write plugins.

Competent, Friendly Bugzilla Services. And Everything Else, too.
