We can and should be smart about the software we commit ourselves to
maintain.  Our community time, energy and ingenuity is valuable and
should be focused on making a better CMS, not supporting and maintaining
a very old, and passable but not terribly good issue tracker.  Our
users' time, energy, and experience is also very valuable and should be
cared for when they report problems with or request features of the
add-ons they use.  It is not only appropriate, but important for all of
this to be taken into account when asking the kind of questions being
asked here.  It is also appropriate and important to be asking these
kinds of questions.
