If you already have to remember that you working ticket #266, why do you
want to remember yet another number?

My sense is that it's difficult to "just know" 3214, in either case it's
probably a two step process: 

    1. Look up the revision
    2. Use it.

I'd much prefer to try to remember an existing ticket number, which I
would use several times over, or a some human text.
