Ok, so I've been thinking about how to implement this in a reliable way.
And there are some problems here. See my comments below.

Here's the first glitch: the commit dialog already is cluttered with UI
elements (and all of them are needed!). Adding another would make things
only worse. And right now I don't know where that ComboBox should go.

The bugtraq: props allow to specify multiple issue numbers in one
commit. So how should we handle that case? Add the same status to all
issues? But then you couldn't close one issue and still assing the
commit to another issue (e.g. Fixes issue 888, brings issue 456 one step
