I agree the current fields are pretty much useless when filtering bugs.

Bugs sometimes affect multiple ports (Safari && Chromium Mac is quite
common), or multiple platforms.
I think two field allowing multiple selections: one for the port, one for
the platform, is the simplest solution and offer lots of flexibility.

If there is a dedicated field for the port, we can get rid of the port
specific components and add "WebKit API". That would be a nice improvement
for the component field. :)
