OK, I guess I cannot help myself. :)

If I as the Administrator have to go out of my way to turn this feature on
in the first place, by setting the properties in my repository, then why
can't you just honor that? You seem to have made up your mind that bug
ID's should never be mandatory and I do not really understand why. There
are plenty of corporations out there that will absolutely want every
transaction to have an ID associated. If you wanted to add another
property with values of warn vs. error I could understand that, but why
are you so against adding a feature that some people demonstrably want and

Yes they can use a hook, but as I said, a hook happens very late in the
process and forces the user to start over. Also, I think it can be
difficult for the bug tracking vendor to provide the hook, as the
Subversion repository could be on just about any operating system. That
means different shells and scripting languages, not to mention other
dependencies. This gets more complicated (in terms of dependencies) if
the script would have to be able to call out to an HTTP service and parse
the results.

OTOH, you are already "planning" to write the major parts of this, you
just do not want to enforce that final piece.
