No, actually switching trackers can be one big pain in the ass.  You
probably aren't aware of how hard it's been for the Python development team
(I think Martin v. Loewis, mostly) to get tracker data out of SF.  An
explicit requirement was that any tool chosen as a SF replacement be able to
easily export its database to avoid this sort of "lock-in" in the future.
