I found this information very helpful. FWIW I prefer simpler tools which
mostly do one thing which can be composed with other simple tools.
Basically, I prefer de-coupling in general. I don't see the alternatives
offer anything really useful that we don't already have with TRAC. The
problems with track seem to be related to implementation details.
Hopefully a lot of this would go a way just by upgrading to the more
recent version of TRAC

This is always a huge issue for boost. The good tool which is hassle free
is much preferred to the "best" tool which requires a lot of attention to
keep running.
