Bruce used to say proudly that we didn't need a bugtracker because *he*
was the bugtracker. Back in those days he had a lot more time to keep
on top of his PG mailbox. Today it is seeming like we need something
better. Something simple though, because the previous discussions
involving bugzilla led nowhere (or actually -- they led us right back
where we started).

Personally I still think debbugs would suit us perfectly, but 1. I don't
have time to handle it, 2. nobody else believes this, 3. the debbugs
developers are not very interested in helping us use it.
