FWIW, I believe the scripts that did the nautilus import (which
maintained inter-bug links, etc.) are still around somewhere in cvs or
on widget. I'd have to poke around, though. In general, it /is/ a nice
thing for the bugsquad to have it all in one place, and I believe JP is
fine with that. The benefits aren't that great, though, so if the
knowledge of how to migrate stuff has been lost, the cost may be too
high at this time.
