I have to agree that bugzilla is absolutely horrible to use (especially 
to search for reports), and I cannot  understand why so many projects
favour it. Also the bugzilla's insistence on registering is annoying,
IMHO anonymous and otherwise non-registered users should be able to
send reports too, although I do understand the issues with that too...
