Sounds like a good idea to me. John, please

Done. Also it would be noce 
to have msg23 and other hyperlinked as well. For my 2 cents it would be 
enough
to put them at the end of the messages before
the chages to 
issue fields under a header like:

---------- referenced tracker 
objects
msg12: http://...
issue8: http://

It's probably worth making a decision whether to put 
references in for quoted text as well - I'd tend to say
'no', as you'll end up with multiple references. Or you
make the "reference text" be of a form that you can 
pick up when parsing the message - if it's there already,
don't re-reference it. Note also that you probably only
want to do the reference thing for the first occurance of
each link.

There's two approaches to take: 
 
1. We insert the links between paras. This means we parse the 
message to figure where the para boudaries are. We can also figure 
quoted bits and ignore them, or 
2. We append links. No parsing is required UNLESS we want to ignore 
quoted bits. 
 
My vote is for approach #2.
