This would be awesome. I like the URL approach. I'd vote for the file
being in xml. I wonder if it would also be possible to include some
meta data (i.e. a Title for the issue/bug/ticket, etc) that would be
displayed when the drop down was displayed so that it was easier to
remember which number to pick :)

It is easy to go look up the number on the webpage, but having a drop
down would help prevent accidental typos and would allow folks to be a
little more lazy :)
