It doesn't work. I tried that many times, but the import only worked
with vCard files containing a single entry. Even two entries would
result in failure.

I'm sick of creating accounts and entering bugs in zillions of
different bugzillas. If they would let me enter a bug without having
to set up an account, then fine. I don't mind entering my email
address with a bug or comment, but as it is, no thanks. Making it a
hassle to submit bugs is a good way to ensure that few people do it.
Once I enter a bug on the Web site (*without* having to actually
create an account), I should be automatically updated by email and be
able to simply "reply" with my email client to make updates or respond
to questions. The current bugzilla process is a huge PITA when one is
dealing with many different apps at once.
