goals is flexibility of schema and workflow, which is what you get when
you delve under the covers to make the tracker work just the way you
wish it to. The ball game workflow you describe above (if I follow it
correctly) could trivially be implemented in Roundup with the simple
addition of some reactor code (which may be what you're referring to by
the term "plugin" :)

it'd be such a simple job getting Roundup running in that framework.
Roundup's development has been going for two years now (and it seemed
like it'd be such a quick-n-simple job when I started - there always
