That's true.

I'm doing some small tests and cannot say anything concrete.

However, Redmine supports MySQL & PostgreSQL (besides SQLite), so that
part should scale well.

otoh, I am waiting quite long for Trac-0.11 to appear and based on
recent post(s) from its devs on ml, it looks it is not so close.

Solution for hosting for many projects, should have built-in support
for multiple-projects and Trac won't have it for some time.

I'll try, although I cannot mimic proper scaling on my localhost with
few small projects.

I fully agree and hope someone more qualified (from Haskell community)
will take a look too.
