[Qgis-developer] Qgis-Processing (former Sextante) has two bug trackers

As a sub-project, it would show up in queries of the main QGIS ticket
system, but at the same time be able to have it's own internal categories.

This to me seems the best compromise. It's really a big plugin with a
myriad of backends. That complexity is what makes it a little different
from the others mentioned. The others mentioned could be sub-projects of
the main QGIS too. In reality all of them are core plugins, but they are
still plugins. None of them are required to make QGIS work (boot). Hence
they each have their own category. The challenge here is
Processing/Sextante(I always call it by both since I do the the
possibility of Processing stuff that isn't sextante) needs it's own

Also it's really easy for use to try moving it to be a subproject and
then reassess (Takes about 30 seconds to move it). If it's still not
right then we can talk about how to move tickets.
