What about solving this with a post receive hook?

As soon as a commit contains something like "Bug 1222" the relevant git 
commit is automatically added to Bugzilla and a link to the git web 
repository is added.

We may even improve this, by automatically closing bug reports if we 
have "Fixes #1222" or something.

I also personally just copy/past the revision numbers, so I do not 
really care how long they are. Even with 6 digits copy/paste is for me 
faster, than remembering them and retyping them.
