Sounds good to me.  I personally have only glanced at it so far, but I'll
give it some attention.  I'm pretty attached to Trac's ability to do
complex queries on tickets and the ability to embed ticket queries into
wiki pages, so the gains would have to be compelling to outweigh the losses
for me.  But I'll give it a closer look.
