Ability to edit report parameters

Description

When I visit a report on Trac there's no way for me to change its parameters. I don't want to edit the actual saved report, but I'm often on a report and I want to tweak the parameters.

It'd be good to see the filter controls on the report screen, or to just include a link form each report to the custom query screen with its parameters filled in.

Trac has two modules: Reports and Queries. A report can be defined either as a custom query, or as they are done for all of our reports, raw (and very complex) SQL. To illustrate, I've added the REPORT_SQL_VIEW permission to bug gardeners on Core Trac — you should see a link at the very bottom of the report for this. I think we can probably make this publicly readable, but I'm not positive (would have to look through the queries).

If a report is defined as a custom query, then they become editable like any other query. Few of our reports can actually be shifted over to the query builder, because we're doing some pretty advanced stuff, even if in some cases it's just workflow groupings or comment count columns.

That said, "or to just include a link form each report to the custom query screen with its parameters filled in." should be doable. Happy to give anyone who wants to help with this the access to edit reports.
