+1 I would have expected this to be the case already. While there is
something to be said for one issue -- one patch, there are legitimate
exceptions. It is possible for two different surface level behavior bugs
to be fixed by one underlying code patch. Also, I would prefer one patch
for multiple typos fixed at the same time.

+1 I would have expected this also. While it is usually a good idea to
put the issue number in the first line, I see this as a social issue
rather than a technical issue. If an issue numbers on later lines is
regarded as an error, then the technical fix would be to reject the
patch with a message to the submitter. 'Errors should not pass silently'.

+1 This would also help bug submitters who are using disutils2 on
pre-3.3 releases to know that the fix is available to them also.
