I've tried tracking habits in RTM, but it really didn't work. And it shouldn't, as it wasn't designed for that.

I agree, Joe's goals works great for reminders. I use it to remind myself to do things until they become a habit. (E.g., there's a password that's important for me to memorize but I don't use it often enough to memorize it from using the password -- so I have a reminder each day to repeat it to myself so I don't forget it. It's not nearly as flexible or full-featured as RTM, but for frequent reminders and developing good habits, it's just right. And, it's fun to see all the checkmarks add up.
