I think Patrick is saying that we should require to have the corresponding
bug number if there is one, not that every commit should have a bug number.

One thing that bothers me most though is that when I somehow dropped the bug
number in the initial commit and add a bug number back in a separate commit,
the bug number doesn't show up on the original trac record and becomes sort
of useless when trying to follow code changes on trac.
