having disparate trackers for "wishlist" and "bugs" is quite harmful
and splits the conversations. It makes people learn multiple systems
and search multiple places - especially if the feature ends up being
submitted as a patch to the bug tracker.
I'd rather keep wishlist items in the bug tracker than split them into two.
(also, fwiw, I'd rather keep the tasks number space clean should we
ever decide to import from bugzilla -> phabricator)
