Color-coding for issue trackers
It'd be nifty with a way to color-code trackers, so for instance "Bug" would be red, "Feature" would be blue and so on. The brightness of the color could be determined by the issue priority. I think this would make it easier to spot the tasks that remain to be completed without having to make specific queries.

Let me add that the choice of color should be determined by the user when creating trackers, and shouldn't be predefined. That way it's also possible to choose colors that fit nicely with whatever theme one uses.

There are themes that do this for you. It is theme based, and the default theme doesn't take this into account. I really like this one. It looks great, and has the basics of what you want in tracker colors:
Each issue row has a class assigned based on its priority, among other things:
class="issue hascontextmenu even status-1 priority-3"
which the theme uses for styling. It's there, but the default theme is... lacking :)

+1. This is very important. The issue statuses are generally always critical in decision making and if visual appeal is striking using colors or other styles, it really captures the essence of critical information.
