It would be quite useful to show bugs (perhaps the most recent ones?) for
the selected component. As things stand, you have to go search (select
package, etc; and the search isn't very intuitive as it stands) and if not
found, file a bug (again, select package etc). For me at least (far away in
network terms) this is slow and somewhat irritating.
