Actually, if that's the only objection it's solved.  RT will now allow you to 
create, comment on, modify, and close bugs by e-mail.   And the RT team would 
be thrilled to have us using it, in theory enough to provide some setup help.
There's one thing that RT doesn't do by e-mail (can't remember offhand) but 
that's a TODO for them so it should be fixed soon.

So, if the only real requirement for a bug tracker is that we can handle it 
100% by e-mail, and integrate it with the pgsql-bugs list, that is possible.
