One issue here is that there's no good mapping from "Despot / code 
module" to "Bugzilla component".  I imagine it'd be possible to 
construct such a thing to some level of accuracy, but likely with a 
bunch of impedance mismatches as well.  It's an interesting thought 
experiment to consider trying to move towards a world where Bugzilla & 
Despot are (as much as is reasonably possible) driven from a single 
database.
