Description

whenever we need to rename products (or components), we need to ask bmo admins to setup rewrite rules.

basic requirements:
let me define that "Places" is "Bookmarks" (simple Component alias, both for global search and for the "Firefox" product, both for enter_bug, and query).

bonus points:
let me say that "Firefox":"Software Update" is now "Toolkit":"Software Update", this is obviously harder. Again, I should be able to define enter_bug to map Firefox/Software Update is now enter_bug Toolkit/Software Update.

search (Firefox, Search|Software Update) => (Firefox|Toolkit, Search|Software Update)

note that I'm not expecting boolean charts to work.

mkanat and I both agree that we don't want it. Too complex for mostly no benefit.
