Yes, in a sense. The difference is that it isn't focused around one
project. You can submit ideas towards many projects.

The difficultly with this is that bugs/feature requests for one
project would be in 2 different places, (in the project specific
tracker and in the this new tracker) which from a usability stand
point is less than ideal.
A better idea would be to incorporate the ideas into the existing
projects, but to have the option of filtering them out. Although this
would probably incur a db schema change of some sort. Does this sound

The trouble with this may be username clashes. Could a system be setup
where, if a user tries to login (to either site) then, first it is
first tested against the local users then against the remote users
(via an encrypted channel) and if a remote user is found then they are
made local? Some form of comment mirroring may also be helpful. How
does this work with other trackers?
Do you have a development/beta site where bugs can be ironed out
before going live?
It seems like there are a few hurdles, but I hope we can find an
arrangement that suits both of our needs.
