[I prefer option "2" above, it's cleaner]

I think we should try hard to get it right before adding any real bugs.
After it goes live it will be too late to change without massive work.
For now I have saved the text of my 2 "test" code,doc bugs and can
repost them.

for recreating the existing trackers with minimal pain, you can view/
save the html source of a page to get a readable/cut&paste list of all
menu options for that tracker. Hopefully an easier solution can be
found -- maybe someone at intevation can make a low-level change?

[other stuff to learn]

To make it more useable a lot of these bumps should be documented.
Is there a way to add/link help text to the trackers? If it has to be
external, linked help pages can live on the wiki site.
