The problem I see with this is we have a number of ITS' that are open 
because the work was partially done, but there is work remaining to be 
done, and that needs to be tracked.  I'm not sure if "Open" is the best 
state, but they definitely shouldn't be "closed" either.

I feel what we really need is a much improved bug tracking system where we 
can do things like assign target releases to bugs, keywords, and have 
better-tuned states.
