Watchbugzilla is imho also interesting for people who only want to triage bugs 
that belong to one package, but are not interested in maintaining them. For 
testers watchbugzilla and -updates /-builds would be useful, but they may not 
be interested in the scm commits. For maintainers that maintain a pacakge 
that depends on another, the watch(updates,builds) can be enough that they 
need to know, because they may not care about bug reports for the package and 
cvs commits. Also upstream of a package might be interested to use 
watchbugzilla for the package in Fedora, but not in the other watch 
possibilities.
