well, with subversion, usually, you create a branche to fix a bug, and then,
all commits to this branch have something to do with the bug.
(you can retrive them very easily, import the changes (almost) where you
want, etc.)

In addition, the notion of bug (managed or not by a third party tools)
imply that you specify, with a commit, some information (identification)
about the related
bug. This can be 'commit in a specific branch' (dedicated to the bug),
but more frequently,
you (also) give such identification through the commit log (like: BUG-1234)
With such convention, looking for every commits having "BUG-1234") in
their log message is easy.

hum... personnaly, I will be really disappointed if subversion will
"offer" such kind of "feature"
(deeply integrated, of course; having a "package" subversion+trac (for
example) is perfectly acceptable)
