It's not a lot of work if you install Trac (or some other equivalent tool) and
use a pre-commit hook to check for a ticket number. Then you helpfully have a
single ticket with all of the associated changesets listed, for easy(?) merging

1.5 (whenever *that* comes out) will automate the merging aspect, and you can
get most of that functionality now with svnmerge.py today. But if you have
multiple tracks of development (trunk, more than one branch you release from),
you really want to have a tool that helps manage that information. Subversion
isn't that tool; something like trac might be...
