That's pretty much my take so far on the problem, after looking at
Launchpad a lot yesterday.  We'll just wait for a few weeks (we have
another 2 sprints coming up in March, one on scipy/neuroimaging and
one on ipython in Paris) and sort out the final decision, but so far
from what I see, I've reached the same conclusion as above.  Launchpad
has a lot of good infrastructure, and I doubt it's worth Enthought's
time to redo it.

If we go that  route, it would be great if we could find a way to
migrate our Trac history into their bug system so we keep our tickets.
