This would be really great! I was thinking the same thing when we spec'd
these features out originally, I just didn't want to ask for too much. :)

I do not want to over-engineer this, but when I was thinking about this, I
felt that this is the perfect candidate for a Web Services approach. This
is more or less the same as what you are suggesting, there just may be
some standard approaches we could follow like using SOAP or XML-RPC.

It would be nice if a similar feature were added that could allow the bug
tracking tool to validate the bug ID's that were entered. So, if this
"feature" were configured, TSVN would do something similar to post the bug
ID's to the bug tracking tool and let it pass back something that said
they were OK to use.
