We can argue about if it's actually an easier management interface ;)

I'd agree with Robert in that it will cause some more such bickering -- but
only because the discussions become visible to a new group of people as
well. That's not necessarily a bad thing. But thinking that having such an
issue tracker is actually going to help *get rid of* the pointless part of
things is a nice dream, but just a dream. The only advantage I can see of
it is to increase the visibility of them.
