This weekend I will begin thinking about which features would be 
beneficial to both Bugzilla and the Support System. It would be

time to Bugzilla *before* beginning a separate code branch, but eventually I think 
the functionality of a Support System is sufficiently different to merit 
an entirely distinct trunk.
