Well, I volunteer to set it up and do the migration. For problems that
come up with bugzilla itself, I hope, the bugzilla developers will help me :)

Well, kbugreport only refers to the wizard, which would need to be rewritten
to either do what it does now or direct to the bugzilla frontend.

The old bugs need to be piped into bugzilla of course. 

kbugbuster is the biggest part of work to do. It could be simplified a lot
if we switch to bugzilla though as if it would need to support two BTSs
