From a developer point of vue, I dare suggesting a code insight like
approach. Following the Trac example, I would really appreciate
something like that:
type your commit message:
whatever whatever, references #|<ctrl+space>
here, TSVN would query on bugtracker side the list of opened tickets,
and list them in a floating window with bug ID / short description.
Another nice addition would be a quick search textbox somewhere on
that dropdown.
You just select your bug, the ID is entered at the carret position,
and you can keep on typing, add a ... fixes #|<ctr+space>, and there
you go.

Maybe what I'm suggesting is huge, but it would be amazing.
