Agreed. I think that, rather than holding Bugzilla to some idealistic
standard of what a bug-tracking system "should" be like, we should
concentrate on the pragmatic issue of whether it is would be a material
improvement over what we have now. Personally, I believe that the
answer to that question is yes.
