GitHub's API has hooks/events for comments on issues & PRs to where it
would be possible to integrate WebKit's GitHub mirror with Bugzilla so that
all comments on PRs could post back to the related Bugzilla bug.  Some
convention would be necessary in the PR title or description to figure out
which bug # it relates to, and a little work would be necessary to write
out the comment into Bugzilla with some code for context (by taking the
diff that's sitting on GitHub).

Definitely work involved, but doable.
