In such case, it'd also probably be a good idea to include a PR-like
problem serial number as part of the Subject header (that also could be
a combination of the tag (if any) and checkout/update timestamp)?

I'm now thinking that if the PR system was rewritten and included an
API for such, the system could possibly actually automatically allocate
a PR ticket, heh.  I wonder if that'd be considered overkill or
PR-spam, though.
