Speaking of which, I'd like to add a requirement to them: that all PHP
files have the following lines somewhere at the end of them.  This
will make sure all us Emacs users have the appropriate indentation
style and Emacs mode (especially for .class files, which Emacs tends
to not see as PHP files).

// Local Variables:
// mode: php
// c-file-style: "bsd"
// End:

  Cool feature, but please make it disablable.

  That's not exactly the way I thought of it.  Bugs/patches/tracker
items and tasks are independent of each other, in my mind.  Again,
please make that behaviour disablable.

  Sure.  Maybe even a CVS branch, although where to anchor it.

  Um.  Depends what you use for the end dates.  If they record
deadlines set by management, for instance, you can't just push them
back as easily.

  Cool.  Remember there are licensing problems with Jpgraph, though.

  Great idea.

  Again, I'd like to stress that I'd like these new features/rewrites
to be made into plugins.  This new task manager, while being extremely
cool, might be overly complex for a default one.  The current one,
while not very feature-rich, is enough for a significant proportion of
users.  Choice would be good.
