It's critical, IMO -- my experience of using mozilla and savannah's bug
tracker is that the annoyance of having to go to the web site and muddle
through the forms significantly decreased the likelihood that I would bother
(it was fine the first N times, but after a while I started to dread it).

"Unless there are slaves to do the ugly, horrible, uninteresting work, culture
and contemplation become almost impossible. Human slavery is wrong, insecure,
and demoralizing.  On mechanical slavery, on the slavery of the machine, the
future of the world depends." -Oscar Wilde, "The Soul of Man Under Socialism"
