Hi, Martin-

I'm still not sure I agree.  I do appreciate your points, but my

That would be rather unwieldy.  A nice thing about Tracker is that it

decreasing the likelihood that the identifier is trimmed, and the email
is not picked up by Tracker.  Putting URIs in the subject line is not

I think something like SVG-ISSUE-# or CSS-ACTION-# would suffice.  But
again, it would have to be implemented, and that doesn't solve the
problem in the immediate timeframe.
