The problem here is that many of the queries we'd need to do are
probably not doable from the web interface- you need raw SQL access,
really. I have a script that can run an SQL query on the box and add
comments ATM; shouldn't be too hard to make that close the bug as well.
that was my plan at any rate :) You're welcome to poke at what is in
bugzilla cvs (bugzilla-new in and come up with something
while I'm busy, though- would definitely be appreciated.
