	There is a global permission called "editbugs." If somebody has
this permission, they CANNOT edit a "canedit" product unless they are
in that group.

	If somebody does not have global editbugs, they can be given
product-specific editbugs. That allows them to edit bugs in ONLY that

	So they're basically opposites of each other.
