If we store the cookie locally when running the bugzilla-tool, we could avoid needing to login everytime we use it and avoid needing to store our bugzilla passwords on disk.

The cookie would expire whenever the bugzilla cookie would normally expire and then we'd have to relogin.

I think this is covered by our use of he mac os keychain.

Not if you're not using Mac OS X.

You should feel welcome to re-open this bug.  We could also approach this by using something like "keyring": https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32728#c1 to support keychain-like applications on more platforms.  Now that autoinstall support has landed, depending on something like keyring is super-simple.
