My god, please, no!  I think the lived in experience that Meta shows us is
that while Wikis are good for some things, for tracking things like bugs
and discussions, they're really terrible. Use a tool that's fit for
purpose, and don't try to bang a wiki-shaped peg into a bugzilla-shaped

(single sign-on across to bugzilla would be very cool though!)
