It is relevant, because I have my hands in all of them.  I don't want to 
have to keep up with too many different systems at once.   Perhaps it's 
selfish and immaterial to others, but it is relevant to me.

Trac integration is exactly what I'm thinking about.   If it is easy, 
then it is not a big deal, but I have not seen arguments or evidence 
that it is the case (or suggestions of something to use other than Trac 
-- which is also a bigger deal for moving everything at once).
