  I thought the roundup interface was quite nice, esp. with the nosy
lists and such.  I'm sure there are a number of small issues, but
nothing Ping can't deal with in a matter of minutes.  ;)
  One thing that might need further consideration is that a feature
proposal may need a slightly different sort of support; it makes more
sense to include more than the one-liner summary, and that should be
modifiable as discussions show adjustments may be needed.  That might
be doable by adding a URL to an external document rather than
including the summary in the issues database.
  I'd love to get rid of the Jitterbug thing!
