i've recently found myself (on dev.laptop.org) referencing other
bug numbers from within the comment text:  e.g., "I wonder if
this bug is related to bug #1234?".  if the old bug #1234 is the
new bug #4321, then presumably your fixes would cause the "#1234"
to link to the new bug system's "#4321" bug, if i click on it,
but it will continue to _say_ "1234.  this is what i think might
be very confusing.
