Agreed; Bugzilla is going to be too complicated of a solution.  I think
the wiki list is sufficient for now, as long as people can stay on top
of keeping it organized and looking tidy.

It does not, but this is something that I think would be valuable to add
to it.

A good way to get this started would be if someone could mockup some
sample pages, including a friendly web form for entering new requests,
and a table layout for how requests should be displayed, and an
administrative screen with the controls for managing the requests.

Once that mockup exists, someone with some PHP know-how could add the
code and set up the database table(s) to support it.
