	That's great. :-) That's more of a Mozilla-specific project than
something that will become part of Bugzilla itself, but maybe if it gets
written as an extension, then all Bugzillas could take advantage of it.

	Well, pretty much what's on the Bugzilla:Developers page on the Wiki is
the best advice to start with, and then if you have any questions, just
come ask us on IRC.
