Yeah, we could still allow modifying existing tickets in Trac, but disable 
creation of new ones. If fixing a Trac ticket in git, the committer should 
make sure to add a manual message to the Trac ticket referencing the commit, 
but that's acceptable I guess.

The advantage of 3) (close all tickets) is that it would be a good way to get 
rid of a lot of historical tickets still opened but about which nobody really 
takes care about.
