Well, I think there are two things to consider here.  First, a process of
tracking bugs (do we need BZ at all or perhaps we can use something else
and how exactly we are going to use that) and second, an infrastructure needed
for that.  They seem to be kind of separate, although obviously the set of
processes we can choose from has to depend on the admins bandwidth limitations,
so to speak.

Yup, that too.
