There should be a way to embed a buglist in an html page via an IFRAME.
Currently, this is not really practical: Each buglist page contains a lot of
crap that isn't really needed: page header, footer, Next/Prev/etc. links, a
quip, the current date, and more.
There should be a way to turn off these unnecessary page elements:
one at a time: &header=no&footer=no&count=no&buglist_links=no&...
and/or with a single switch like tinderbox has: &nocrap=1

This could be fixed during templatization.
Depends on: 103778

Should this bug list format by styled the same way the default format is styled
(i.e. with color, boldness, and italics indicating various permutations of
priority and severity)?

No idea. Note that this bug originated from bug 9789 comment 18.
Maybe it's fine if it's just the same as in the original buglists.
I just thought it would be a cool feature to make it possible to write your own
web pages with embedded live buglists. The main benefit from this would be that
you could prepare some "interesting" queries for other people to look at, while
providing some explanation for each one together with the query result.

Or, this can be used by engineers to use their desktop space more efficiently.
If you implement this with &header=no etc. cgi args, the buglist itself should
obviously appear in the same style as if this param was not given.

After discovering bug 103778 comment 40 I think it would be best if the use
could select a style with just yet an other param, e.g. &style=default or
&style=none (or off) or something. I think the question of style is orthogonal
to the complex/simple format thing. Not sure how to achieve that with templates
without creating N * M templates, one for each complexity / style combination.

This bug has been fixed with the check-in of the fix for bug 103778.  File
another bug on the CSS issue or see bug 130276.
