That they're in entirely distinct trackers.  Would be much better if
everything were in one tracker, with a bug-vs-patch-vs-feature tag for
filtering displays.  It's just extra work for everyone when, e.g., someone
opens an SF bug in "the bug tracker" and then someone submits a patch to fix
that bug in "the patch tracker".  Now you've got two disconnected blobs
(distinct URLs, distinct "id"s, distinct comments and descriptions, etc).
