The main disadvantage I see when not using bugs.maemo.org is that we
don't have a unique entry point for bug reports. However that's not a
new problem.
I was for example asked by my g/f where to file GPE bugs (they have
their own bug database), and I wonder how a normal user can find out
from the User Interface of an application where/how to report issues
(e.g. if the XSBC-Bugtracker field defines only an email address).
