 I don't remember reportbug being that userfriendly, but yeh some
graphical tool that can get local data and screenshots etc. would be
nice.
 _But_ as others have said in this thread, if someone wants to do some
easy/quick to use tools for BZ the first ones they should be writing are
for the developers/packagers. I won't mind getting 666 dups, or dealing
with 10x as many bugs in general, as long as I have a decent local tool
that can manage that number of bugs. Atm. lots of TABs of open bugs, and
giant folders of BZ email are the best tools I've seen.
