hey, you sound like RMS, scary ;-)

all right, all right. don't want to fight but just remember that  
Forrest uses Jira (which is also installed already on  
and that i believe Jeff would patch a bug report much faster than you  
could do with the bugzilla source code in hand (having perl sourcecode  
or java binary code, IMO, it's the same thing)

but I agree on your third point: locking could be applied (even if a  
very bad move for them).

but don't impose bugzilla as the center of our work organization, it's  
just too bad. :-(
