Everything I've seen from Daniel so far seems to be about either making
things we already do more efficient, or else providing additional
features in ways that don't make the tools any more confusing for others
already used to a particular way of doing things. So he seems to be
navigating this particular minefield pretty well so far.

Then again, I may be a little biased - some of the recent bug tracker
changes are things I had wished for in the past, but never chipped in
any code to help make them happen :)
