Sure, but I think the point is:  we pick what works best for us and our
users, not what satisfies buzzword-completeness.  We surely should
reject change, if it's for the worse!  [Maybe that sounds obvious, but
contemporary corporate culture often does not follow that rule...]

I've used low-quality web bug-trackers (e.g. the one on savannah), and
IMHO, they're no improvement over the status quo -- they have some
advantages, but the disadvantages are also severe.
