Moving away from reporting to RH bugzilla and adopting pure upstream reporting mantra.

Additional concerns I'd have above this:

- Not all things we ship have active upstream bug trackers to fall back on
- We still need a way to track Fedora-specific integration & packaging
  concerns, which would likely get closed upstream as 'NOTABUG' for that
- What filing downstream gives the Fedora maintainer is a good mechanism 
  for knowing what's going on in that package in Fedora. Tracking *all*
  upstream bugs in a bug tracker may not be a good way to do so.

Honestly, I think a good dedicated triage team that works to verify and move
upstream as appropriate works better. But, you know, requires getting and
keeping such a team.
