I admit, I tend to instinctively dismiss anything from canonical, and
indeed launchpad in particular (because of its proprietary past, and the
vague "all-consuming-bloat-master" feel one gets from using it on the
web).  Perhaps it's better than I assumed.

I vaguely thought we were talking about bugzilla at some point, I dunno
what happened to that.  From that discussion, I seem to recall that it's
gained some email control/discussion features (the lack of which has
been a blocker for bugzilla traditionally), and seems to have slowly
been losing some of its "confusing mess" reputation.

[I think allowing email _replies_ in bug comments is pretty important --
there's absolutely nothing more annoying than getting email
"notification" of a discussion on a bug, and not being able to reply in
email... web interfaces are generally pretty good for clicking buttons
or searching, but not for having discussions.]
