Rich Client for enterign a bug

I'm currently evaluating FogBugz (for the umpteeth time), I think I can solve my remaining issues by prepending a small WinApp that gathers system information, and submits it to the Database.

it would need to:
- read information about Projects, Releases etc. from the server
- gather additional information from the system
- submit a new bug to the database, append one or more files, and comments

Is there anybody who did (or tried) this already?

i've made changes to both FB code and written custom programs that read and write to the db. The table designs are easy to understand and fields have consistent naming. Just start looking at the asp code.

Similarly, I've added some stuff to provide a simple Web Services-style interface, in order to plug FB into our own client extranet. In turn, a simple XSLT turns that into an RSS feed for our development staff as well :)

The Scout stuff is a step in the right direction, but to have a richer, two-way, interface built-in would be a whole lot better.
