It's not bad looking.  But I think that if I do set up any sort of 
web-based tracker of this sort, it would likely be Roundup, which is 
written in Python and very customizable in terms of data model.  Also, 
Roundup would appear to have smarter e-mail handling than JIRA, and as you 
may have noticed, I like to use e-mail to create and describe issues.  :)

However, for the moment, I'm the only person actively developing PEAK 
itself, so it seems wasteful for me at this point to set up a public 
tracker.  For the moment, I'm reusing an Ecco-based tracker I'd set up last 
year when I was last doing heavy PEAK development.  Since it's client-side, 
I can easily move things around and type in new items.  By comparison, 
entering my little one-line to-do items into a web form seems like running 
in mud: it's messy, noisy, and slow.  :)
