There's a tool that helps you write spells acctually :)
Just cast guru-tools and run quill. It also hase a freshmeatxml option
which makes it easier to enter the description etc.
Also bugzilla isn't a place to request new spells. Such bugs are ussualy
invalidated so only file new spells with attachments of spell tarballs.
If you want to request new spells either ask on the forums or on IRC.
I don't think we have any other ways of requesting. I could be wrong.
