It's gotta be done; otherwise, bugs will just sit around and rot.
OK, this is done. A new script "whineatnews.tcl" has been created. It's even briefly discussed in the README file now.

The database is being reorganized a bit. Instead of the Bugzilla product, a new Webtools product has been created, with Bugzilla being a component of it. This bug is being moved from the old Bugzilla product to the new Webtools product.
verifying; I get lots of complaints to my webmail account (i just don't read that account).
