just checked out the latest iteration of this and it's pretty good. it still 
pretty rough though:

* voting on an item takes you back to the beginning of the list of items

* i can't find any way to tag an item with the relevant application (so, e.g., 
i can follow all the plasma ones)

the ajax stuff is a huge improvement, but the workflow for developers using it 
as a tool is nearly non-existent. essentially, it has a lot of what bugzilla 
is missing but is missing everything useful bugzilla has :)
