I've never used OTRS, but I don't see us in the same market as RT.

That's a good idea. We currently have a single, special, default saved
search called (unhelpfully and unclearly) "My Bugs". It would be better
to have some non-special ones which were populated by default, with
things like "Filed By Me", "Assigned To Me" and so on.

Hmm. Is there an intermediate interface here we could write to which
would allow pluggable SCM backends?

Yeah... I'm not sure we are ever going to have that.

It would be great if there was a GUI way to expand the autolinker -
define a regexp, then a URL with a %s in it or something.
