that's one possibility but, really, sometimes bugzilla is just plain
overkill.  it would be nice if there was a simple form like:

  Software upgrade suggestion:  snerf-2.0.
  Software home page:  www.snerf.org

and that would be it.  using bugzilla for everything makes one think
of the old saying, "if the only tool you have is a hammer, every
problem looks like a nail."
