I don't really see that moving the facility from a faked up user to its
own entity makes much difference here, assuming the same controls on who
can set things up exist.

If your users use RSS, perhaps.

Again, if the administrators of the bugzilla system are happy to

But those things don't match the client's requirements in my case :)

I'm working against 3.0.4 so when the code's done I'll post the patch
and if the bugzilla devs like it, I'll port it to head. If not, no harm
done -- the client gets their functionality either way.
