Does that mean the docs need updating?

Ah :-| Can you quantify "a fairly good chance"? You mean "it might work
this way, I don't have time to read the code", or "it'll work 95% of the
time, and fail horribly the other 5%"? :-)

The plan here is that I am building an extension to do generic syncing
of bugs to other systems, and then further extensions to implement
syncing to particular systems.
