Even better, one can use the shorthand "#1234" for ticket:1234 and
"r5678" for changeset:5678. We use these conventions in OpenLayers SVN
commit messages and ticket comments all the time, and Trac
automatically turns them into links to tickets and changesets in
ticket comments and changeset browsing and wiki pages by default.
