"Comment" adds a comment to the history, visible to anyone who can
view the bug/issue, but sends no email.  "Reply" adds a comment to the
issue history, and also sends that comment to the original requestor
and anyone else listed as an interested party for the issue.  Neither
is particularly "private", as I recall.
