[Mono-dev] Link to svn revision in bugzilla comments

I've been using trac and redmine bug tracking systems with several
other projects I follow, and those two have a feature I miss greatly
in mono bugzilla: links to revisions related to a certain comment/bug.

A plea to the commiters: could you please provide a revision number in
the comment when you are making source changes related to the ticket?
It is much easier to check what has changed when one has a "fixed in
svn r105311" instead of searching svn logs by date. This information
is trivial to include at the time of committing the changes, but quite
hard to find afterwards (especially taking into consideration how many
commits a day mono receives).
