Thanks David.  I have found a way around my problem.  I went back to the
v3.0 release version of Bugzilla/WebService/ and then manually
added the 'append_comment' function from the patch.  That did the trick.
Not much of a patch review I'm afraid.  :-)

The XML-RPC interface is perfect for migrating bugs from a 'home grown'
bug tracker to bugzilla.  I've needed add plenty of test bugs to my
bugzilla installation during the course of developing my migration
scripts.  To easily remove these tests I added a 'Bug.remove' XML-RPC
that removes a bug from the database.  It's a wrapper around a routine I
found in Bugzilla/ called 'remove_from_db'.  Bugs removed this way
are removed properly and the DB stays sane. 

Attached is a patch that adds Bug.remove.  Use -p5 option to patch.
