Feature Request: permanent link to bug comment

I find that I want to reference a bug comment when sending an email to another developer or in the comment of another bug. Eg "The answer to the question in <Bug Comment #2> is: blah blah". I find that I usually just say "look at second comment on 01/01/2003" which is a pain. It'd be nice to have a permanent link to each comment. Maybe in the form of
(bug 1, comment 34).

Hi JN! Thanks for the thoughtful feedback, we'll add it to our files for possible features in the future.

I would strongly second this idea. Even further, I cannot even think how can I live without it :-)

In our copy of FB I implemented this feature. I changed default.asp and dlgBugEditing.asp to accept an ixBugEvent value. Each ixBugEvent row on the page has an img link which calls the current page, adding the ixBugEvent arg. When the page gets a request with the ixBugEvent arg, it will highlight the corresponding ixBugEvent data on the page.

Changed files are available here:

'JN comments mark code changes.
