Thanks for pointing this out. I hope I don't have to fill out another  
password registration to comment on that bug...

The problem with how people are speaking about the issue there, is  
that they are restricting themselves to talking about referring to  
bugs within other bugzilla bug databases. It feels a little like an  
attempt at lock in, which is doomed to fail. Bugzilla, however good,  
is never going to own the whole bug market. Much better would be to  
work on interoperation between all the bug systems. That is what the  
baetle vocab is about.

So I think really there is a great opportunity here to do something  
really big.

I am in the bay area right now, btw. So if anyone is around here and  
would like me to give an overview of how this works, so as to make  
some brainstorming possible let me know. I have to fly back to Europe
