The part I'm worried about is the burden on the maintainers to update
the bug-tracker's info about the bug status.  The interface doesn't
matter: it's mostly manual labor, one way or the other.

Without status being updated on a timely basis, there's not much sense
in setting up the bug-tracker, since our private mail archives are
already efficient means of saving the reports.
