If you already drilled down to the issue queue, why do you still need  
the summary blocks?

A) Seems like a huge waste of screen real estate.  I'd rather there  
were no blocks on the issue queue pages, frankly.

B) That's technically hard because the view isn't registering itself  
in the menu system in such a way that menu_get_object() can find the  
$project context so that the block knows this is a page associated  
with a given project.  (Sorry if that doesn't make sense, see http://drupal.org/node/431726 
  for a little background if that helps).  We *could* hard-code some  
hacks into the block to still sort of make this work, but it'd be  
ugly, and IMHO not worth it, especially since I don't want these  
blocks (any blocks, really) to show up on the issue queue pages...
