What I was envisioning is more or less a clean slate: we'd migrate
over a few tickets, but essentially we'd start with an empty list. I
realize that sounds pretty harsh. However, I hardly ever see any
activity on older tickets in JIRA, and I generally believe that the
less open tickets a tracker has, the easier it is for people to
understand what's actually relevant and worth spending cycles on.
Tagging tickets may help, but in the end if everybody just filters 95%
out all the time anyways, I'm not sure what the value is.

That said, I'm open to a real porting effort if people do believe it's
helpful to get all the JIRA tickets into GitHub. What do others think?
