Could I ask you to save us a few hours by answering some
questions?  Setting it up and playing won't happen before the weekend
due to the subversion 'excitement'.

- does one database and CGI have multiple projects, or do you
set up one CGI per project?

- could it also be used in a design stage to quickly map
out subprojects and tasks and register all of them as to-do

- we already have a MySQL support database.  Any idea if there are 
deep fundamental ties to SQLite or if this would be a relatively
minimal change?

- is there any kind of security model so I could let let
BigBank employees see the BigBank/Statements project
wiki and issue list,  without even being aware of the existence 
of the rival HugeBroker/Statements project we are working on
at the same time? ;-)

Rationale:  an integrated system which works for open source
users and commercial customers on projects, and which keeps all 
our staff issues in one database will be a big time saver.
Creating separate databases for every project might not be 
(although we could do it for the core code...)
