I don't think so. Technically, there's nothing you can do with the foreign
language bugs in the BTS, that you can't do with the bugs in a separate
BTS. Trivially, you can just mirror both BTS'es onto a single machine,
and do some renumbering.

The only question is what things will work immediately, and how much
effort various features will require. Having separate BTSes doesn't cause
any stress on anyone but the people who want to file bugs in Greek, and
that's the way things should work: the people who get the benefit out of a
change are the ones who should be putting up with all the pain it causes.

It's trivial to have reportbug know which hosts to contact for which

Uh, the translation's still necessary so that other developers can come
along and look at the bug.
