Not sure really.  The main problem is that the alternatives aren't all
that much better which is really really sad.  There's crazy stuff like
Jira that we can get a FOSS license for, but that's a beast I don't
want to thrust onto users or ourselves when it comes to

I'd also point out that we basically left it behind in 2007, here's an
outdated graph showing as much...
