	No, SOAP in bugzilla will be really cool, but this would be
bugzilla development, and this is another story :)

	My idea for bug-buddy was to write the bug in xml, send it to a
mini cgi that read this xml and send it to import.xml
	Sending the bug info via http is the only solution that I see
for the current mail problem: we cannot spawn an external mailer with a
long body (stack traces are long) because the unix command line
limitation. We cannot run a mailer with a pre-written file (maybe I
heard something about evolution?). So we finally are using sendmail, 
but lot of desktop systems does not have a working sendmail (ssl stuff
is difficutl to set up, and they are using mozilla or evo for smtp).

	In the other hand, a good point of using http is that we can
requiere the user to have a valid bugzilla account... do we want this?
