That sounds pretty neat.

Rather than worrying about anonymizing data, you could allow PLaneT
packages to include a public key provided by the author. Encrypt the
whole enchilada that gets sent to trac. If the package maintainer
wants to make the details public, he can decrypt it and append it to
trac message. That way there are two options: insecure and secure,
make it the maintainers choice and default to insecure.
