I've got two requirements that are basically identical (assuming the
system is properly coded):

* The system should work with Lynx and other non-standard browsers (this
is my biggest problem with SF)

* The system should be remotely scriptable from Python (that is, I
should be able to have a Python script that automatically creates a bug
report and uploads the files for me)

It's not a requirement, but I strongly suggest that all linkages be
capable of many-to-many relationships.  (This comes from a bad
experience with a tech support package that only permitted one bug
report to be associated with a tech support incident.)
