I have worked before with a bug tracker on previous projects. with creative
people I've had positive and negative results. So I think it depends on the
people we're working with how this will go. I personally over-use bug
trackers a bit as I plan whole projects in them even if I'm the only one
working on it (it makes nice documentation afterwards). But in general a
big: +1

What we do need to monitor is how people are responding to the bug tracker.
I know that some bug trackers can be couple to mailing lists. That would be
an idea but it would overflow email dramatically (in my last project i had
about 100 emails a day from the issue tracker). But that would be the choice
of the user ofcourse.
