XMLRPC? gads :-(

In "the old days", someone would just "write a script". has that somehow
become less effective now that XML has been invented? :-/

It IS. But no-one with the appropriate level of authority cares enough to
put the effort in to fix it, it seems.

(BTW personally, if one has to choose email or web interface, in this day
 and age, I'd chose web. Which is presumably why more people are using
 sourceforge and/or bugzilla over the debian bugtrack system)
