RFE: Allow to move bugs via HTML form

The source bugzilla should get the bugid and the URL of the destination bugzilla
and then create a HTML form which "moves" the bug via HTTP POST, e.g. admin sees
the page, verifies the content and hitting the "Move" button then moves the bug
from one bugzilla to the other instance (this would be much easier than the
"move by email" feature I heared about).

Summary: RFE: Allow to move bugs via HTML form → Allow to move bugs via HTML form
This is how the move feature already works (as far as the form goes).  The
button to move the bug is only visible to people in the authorized movers list
in params.

However, it would be nice to have it do it via HTTP.  I can't believe we didn't
have a bug for this already.  I have Bugscape -> Bugzilla moves already working
this way because AOL was mean and nasty with our firewall before they cut
Mozilla loose.  I've got two weeks left at AOL, I need to see if I can get
permission to get that code off of Bugscape before I leave. :)

move.pl changes to send via http (major hack)

This is very much a "quick hack" to get the job done.  It's insecure as hell,
and not intended for production use (although it was, but only because we were
desperate :)

This might be a basic starting point for making this work in a better way

importxml.cgi - the receiving end

And here's the CGI that did the receiving on the other end, which was basically
a hack to pass it off on importxml.pl
Reassigning bugs that I'm not actively working on to the default component owner
in order to try to make some sanity out of my personal buglist.  This doesn't
mean the bug isn't being dealt with, just that I'm not the one doing it.  If you
are dealing with this bug, please assign it to yourself.
