OK, I went with this scheme, implemented it, and added the necessary
Perl modules to the Puppet configuration for

This includes two locally built modules:


Where the latter is an empty package that just provides DBD::Oracle to 
make Data::ObjectDriver happy.

Listed optional modules for Bugzilla that I did not install are:

 Image::Magick (ImageMagick-perl)

  Don't consider the security risk of launching ImageMagick
  code from the web interface worth the marginal feature of allowing
  BMP's to be converted to PNG's on upload. (Probably most BMP's that
  are uploaded to are to demonstrate bugs in gdk-pixbuf
  or EOG...)

  Don't need Radius authentication
