I don't see the point of dragging in more infrastructure.

- we haven't seen much interest from developers in responding to
  pledges.  This might change.
- we haven't seen much interest from users in *making* pledges.
  This might change, especially if we start advertising it, but
  more especially if developers start chasing bounties.

At the moment, we might as well continue to add the tag to items
in the issue tracker as appropriate.  I mean, if we get so many
pledges that managing them by tagging issues becomes too much
work... well, I'd say that this would be a *fantastic* problem to
have.  :)
