Although I think trac is nice, the switch seems like an awful job
since the bugzilla2trac scripts seems to be horrible. And although
trac looks nice for users (roadmap view), I think bugzilla is more
powerful for our purposes.

fix releases, so it looks stable enough to me. So if you (Brian) want
to switch, tell me and I'll fix the templates.
