Reuse of Bugzilla Authentication

I have a system where I host a subversion repository, a WebDAV server,
and of course, a Bugzilla instance.

I am reusing the Bugzilla accounts for authentication in subversion
and WebDAV. In order to avoid problems with the '@' character in
account names, I have also added a field "login" to the Profiles
table. (For example, my user name is "jochen.wiedmann at",
but my login is "jwi".) The login is used for Basic authentication.

Is that of any interest to others?

a preventative effect against manipulating elections.

The german government justifying the use of electronic voting machines
and obviously  believing that we don't need a police, because all
illegal actions are forbidden.
