I have one problem with it compared to the old one. I write changelog 
entries for myself (in the changelog file distributed with the 
software) in a form of:
 - Do not crash if an old target got destroyed [#124554]

I also have a simple Quanta script that changes [#124554] to [<a 
href="http://bugs.kde.org/124554">#124554</a>] by simply selecting the 
number (a double click) and invoking the script with a button or via a 
shortcut. Now it will be hard to make a script do the same without some 
deeper bash/sed/grep/awk knowledge to produce 

<bugfix bugno="124554">Do not crash if an old target got destroyed. 

with a simple select & run. ;-)

But if somebody helps with it, I will show how to use it in Quanta. :-)
