I think this is a good idea.

I have a few modules in the RTx:: namespace (named similarly to DBIx::)
that provide convenient wrappers around many of the things in RT::
modules, and have a number more planned.  I would be happy to move
development to another system, especially if there is the potential for
feedback and contributions.

I would like to see a section with examples on how people have
integrated RT into other systems, such as IRC or CVS.  Examples of how
people have set up their mail servers to integrate with RT would also be

Agreed -- it's too special purpose.

I think the biggest problem is going to be finding people to administer
the project -- it would be unfair to Jesse to simply assume that he will
be doing it.  If something like this does get set up, I will be happy to
help administer it, or do whatever I can to help.
