Someone is setting it up, and has written those
scripts. A working demo (populated with PythonLabs
history) should soon be available.

I have to say that my "good enough" has been
focussed on funtionality more than usability.
I've never noticed any particular[1] difficulty
in using the SF tracker to enter or post info on
a bug, so François probably has a different "good
enough" :-).

[1] Writing an app as a set of cgi's is a fast way
to write a mediocre GUI. Writing a *good* GUI
in this environment is extremely difficult and ugly,
because you end up with lots of just-barely-portable-
by-any-definition-thereof javascript, and Aahz is
left out in the cold. Oh well, at least no one had
a requirement that it be usable throught their
cell phone...
