Given that there's no real control on bugzilla accounts, I'm somewhat
reluctant to make it a complete free for all and let any new user edit
any bug. However, for anyone running a subsystem, or anyone else
that I have a vague clue who they are (or any established developer
will vouch for, anyone I can see git commits for, etc), I am perfectly
willing to enable global edit on a individual basis. Hasn't been a big
problem up until now, so I suspect it won't turn into one.

I enabled your account. Thanks for looking at bugs ;-)
