We currently require every commit to have
LOG: 23232
MERGE: anything
or else the commit is rejected.

This information should not be in a comment.  It should be in another 
table and provided to show_bug in a manner similar to the attachment 
list.  This allows queries like....  "show all bugs touching myfunctions.c"

It also facilitates dumping a list of bugs between CVS tag 
BUGZILLA_2_17_1 and BUGZILLA_2_18
