Similar to bug 184081

Describecomponents should be smarter than it is.  It should not use entry as its
criteria.

The purpose of describecomponents is to help people figure out the best
component to place something in when filing a bug.  So if they can enter bugs in
a product, they should be able to see that product's list.

If you're making it use viewable in addition, then that's ok, but we can't
remove enterable as permission to see it.

Fair enough, though it does make using describecomponents a bit strange from the
Search pages.

You could parameterise it without too much trouble (&list=viewable or
&list=enterable).
