debbugs is configurable I believe
launchpad too (or should be for staging tests) ;) 
bugzilla definitely is

Ignoring the code for a second, what we conceptually do is include some
bug tracker instances by default, and provide a bazaar configuration
driven way to add new ones. We can also accept patches for large
projects (of a size similar to the ones we already include by default)
to include them by default.

Now codewise, gnome isn't an instance of
URLParametrizedIntegerBugTracker because we haven't put a
bugzilla_gnome_url key into the global config object which everything
falls back to (and really, we don't have to, we wouldn't save all that
much code).

So in the description I think we want to be clear that:
 - we ship the bugtrackers of projects that are likely to affect many of
our users
 - we will add more on request
 - *any* project can be supported by either
  - adding a config key for a generic 'trac' or 'bugzilla' instance
  - adding a plugin to allow other bugtracker types (and we'd like
patches for those to allow anyone to use them)
