There's one easy but deeply flawed way to do this -- automatically create
a username at fedoraproject.org bugzilla account for the user with the password
used in FAS.  Deeply flawed in this case because the passwords can get out
of sync, we're creating accounts when people sometimes want to use
a different address in bugzilla and fas, etc.  We don't control RH bugzilla
so changing bugzilla to be able to use fas to login would be problematic.
