Even though our bugmeisters have decided that we should not have wishlist 
items in our bug tracker, I really wish we could store the various idea lists 
(we have several) in an issue tracker instead.  This would allow for folks to 
comment on ideas, vote for them, etc.  It would also make it easier for more 
people to submit new ideas.

It also provides a better place to store metadata about the issue itself 
(wikis are kind of poor for that).
