It would be cool to have a SOAP API as it would allow an application to
receive a immediate response about the success of the operation. I can
send a mail on my application (I'm currently setting bugs as forwarded
through devscripts on bug-triage), but I've no way to make sure this
will work, or not. So I can't change the information on the interface
before it's effectively changed in the BTS and the user reloads its
query, which feels a bit inconsistent, eg, "I've set this bug as
forwarded, why it show as not forwarded?", at least for new users.
