In the current commercial editions you can specify "bug1234" in the message 
text and provided the "message to bug" conversion is enabled on the server - 
the server translates that to a -B option.  That takes care of backward 
compatibility with non-CVSNT clients.  The source is in the tree - so if you 
compile from the branch CVSNT_BRANCH_2_5_03_2382 then you get that stuff - 
I just don't have enough hours in the day to port all this to 2.5.04 at the 
moment - but it will eventually happen.

The "message to bug" is an important feature that I do want to see in EVS 
sooner rather than later, but it probably wont be added until the last 
minute since it's realtively self contained and we've got more critical 
functions to get working...
