That would definitely be the best approach.

Good suggestion! I'd guess doing that in Trac wouldn't be very
difficult, a similar report is readily available.

I have no idea what would be used inside TSVN to connect to the given
URL - I don't have enough of a Windows background to judge here but I'd
expect any component which could be used for that should be able to
prompt the user with a password dialog. I'm assuming authentication is
Still possible I'm missing the point and talking rubbish here :-/

True - this would really be more of a convenience feature than an
absolutely needed one. Maybe something which could be added to the long
term road-map?

Thinking about it a bit more I'd say only a list of issue numbers
wouldn't be sufficient - you'd still have to look up which one you want
in the browser. But it would be worth it if the list would consist of
number + ticket title/abstract. The whole point is not being forced to
remember ticket numbers or to look them up, in contrast remembering the
approximate abstract is easy.

I'd even volunteer to look into this myself, but realistically speaking
I must admit I neither have the dev environment needed to do TSVN
development nor the time :-(
