I would argue that we should try to use the same bug tracking system and if a 
situation arises where most of the windows bugs are windows only then set up 
another bug tracking system that can import non windows into bugzilla.  

There is a number of interesting projects going on right now about reporting 
bugs upstream.  The ubuntu guys have been making the biggest noise on it, but 
it matters to a whole lot of people, companies, distros (hmm new company idea 
here...?  Sell a product that can intigrate your local [bug tracking system, 
svn, etc] into another one).  It would be an interesting technical problem to 
solve elegantly.
