We're using MochiKit for JSON handling and url encoding. Since we won't be supporting Firefox 2.0 for the next release, we can use the native JSON support and the native encodeURIComponent instead of including something as big as MochiKit. We should just make our own JSON/XHR handing functions for common use. We also have some extra code with respect to Bugzilla access that we don't use at all, so that should be taken out.

just my changes

patch just showing my changes.
This adds getJSON, getText, getXML, and urlEncode functions to common.js to replace the previous MochiKit functionality. This also removes the "login to Bugzilla" and "write to Bugzilla" functions from bugAccess.js as we don't use these at all right now and changes the way we parse bug lists - it now retrieves bug lists in the "atom" format and queries the xml.

oh, I forgot to add that this patch also:

* fixes bug that surfaced after JSON changes where onselect fires on litmus test list the first time the listbox is loaded, so it tries to load an "undefined" test at first. added check to "handleSelect" function in litmus.js.

* turns bugAccess into a literal object, I don't think we need more than one instance of a bugAccess object and it doesn't need to hold any state anyways, just functions.
