I think we agree that, with Emacs, a better system could be done (if not
in absolute terms, definitely better for Emacs-using developers tracking
Emacs-using users :)

Where we differ is, these Emacs-based systems do not exist.  We don't
have a project or a group of people set to create one, we don't have, as
far as I can see, even one developer with the time or the inclination to
create it.  Other systems are less perfect, but the quality of already
existing weights a lot.

Here, I agree with Karl: we don't have an issue tracker.  How could
having one, even if web-based, be a non-starter?  Nobody's forced to use
