This is definitely a good idea and also not very difficult to
implement, as long as some precautions are used:

- NO network connection must be made when showing the commit dialog. I
suggest a connection when the combobox is first 'touched', i.e. opened
and then filled.
- To keep things easy for the normal user, I recommend not using a
script which each user would have to install (for every subversion
client in use).
- Instead of a script, how about an URL pointing to a file which a
client can download, parse and get the open issues from that file.
Trac (or any other Bugtracking system) could generate that file on
request like a dynamic webpage. Problem here: what if that list is
'protected', i.e. if you have to authenticate to just get that file?

On the other hand: it's not much work for a user to open a webbrowser
and check the list of open tickets/issues with the browser....
