In my opinion these are non-issues that Simon has basically already
answered.  As far as the user interaction, jira seems to have the most
logical workflow out there for the user when properly configured.  I'd
rather see your talents go towards making DragonFly better -- not
re-inventing a bug tracking system.  In my opinion JIRA is quite good,
and it has a no-cost license.  I don't think the company is going under
or will rescind the open-source license.  Have you seen some of their
customers?  http://www.atlassian.com/about/customers.jsp
