	In 3.0 you can do this in the XML-RPC Interface, User.login.

	Otherwise you'll have to do screen-scraping and figure out if
your login succeeded.

	You'd have to screen-scrape for that--we don't export that data
in any standard way, right now.

	You might want to look at what my supybot plugin does, there.
It's in bzr, so you can do:

	bzr checkout http://bzr.everythingsolved.com/supybot/Bugzilla

	And look at the _getBugs subroutine in plugin.py. (And the
various subroutines it calls.) Also, the "query" subroutine shows how I
do searches.

	Basically, I use the RDF format of the buglist, and the XML
format of a bug.

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