ooh!  this sounds like a much better idea.

or assign it to /dev/null and watch everyone cry.
/me is in a sadistic mood today

hmm...  i think using another mantis installation might not be the best 
idea.  i can see people being confused as to which tracker they're in.  
tho if you can hange the color scheme and stuff that might help.

also, is it possible to remove options from the bug tracker's menu?  it 
would be quite helpful to remove the "feature" option from the 
"severity" box on the bug reporting form.  similarly, if we use another 
mantis instance for a feature request tracker, some pruning there 
would be in order.
