I see two main uses for such tool:

1. To help the maintainer keep his bugs under control
2. To make it easier for other persons to help on bug triaging.

As most of our big teams are under-staffed, I would like to work on the
second use case first. We can do a curses/cmdline/whatever interface
later IMHO, as long as we keep it in mind and keep interface and
"backend" separated.
