I wasn't very clear, there.  Of course users need web forms, and they

desirable thing.

A VCS-based solution would be more complicated than necessary. Easier
just to write a w3m-based client that pulls a copy of the entire bug database out of the tracker.

Just a detail and nothing to discuss now: w3m is not available everywhere. Maybe the url libraries in Emacs can be used though.
