You (as an ordinary user) can have it both ways in the same instance.

If Martin adds a "task" issue type (which is easy to do in Roundup),
then you personally can create and save queries for "task", "bug",
"feature", etc.  Your view of the database will then be more like

On the other hand, cross-referencing and creating dependencies across
issue types becomes a lot easier if they're in the same database.
That's important for some issues.
