Truth be told, I don't mind removing the code from f-r.
about we provide a wrapper for python-bugzilla? Just a simple shell
script mind you (which would directly call "bugzilla"). This way we
would still provide users with simplified way to assign bugzilla and
perhaps do the approval part as well.

If anything, I'd like to keep the commandline options there and when
invoked they should print out suggested workaround so people who were
using them won't be (too) surprised.
