Several new methods will/should land on time for Bugzilla 3.2. mkanat is
currently working on fully implementing Bug->update which will let you
edit all attributes of existing bugs, which is a huge improvement. I
also hope we will be able to query the DB given some criteria (e.g.
using the QuickSearch syntax, despite I know mkanat is not a fan of it)
and get back a list of bug objects, which would also be a significant
improvement. About administrative tasks, some work has been done in the
backend which would let us implement some admin methods too.

Even if we freeze in a few weeks to prepare Bugzilla 3.2 RC1, I see no
reason to stop the implementation of new webservice methods as they
don't affect the core code itself. We could discuss this topic at our
Bugzilla meeting next week.
