Because we don't have to maintain it or host it. I don't think we  
have the amount of volunteers (feel free to convince me otherwise :)).

I'm not sure how far along Trac's multi-project/single-repository  
integration is. As far as I'm aware, however, Trac would poorly fit  
our repository structure.

That's not to say I don't like Trac. I've used it and I like it.  
Plone seems to be able to use it quite well, but they also have  
people worrying about it and maintaining it constantly.
