"Magic links" to notes: display note number in link text
I think that it would be better if the link text also contains the note number, like this: # 2715-42. It would be handy especially for the notes near the end of the page, because in that case the note won't be displayed at the top of the screen after following the link.
This will also help with discoverability / learnability of the "Magic links to notes" feature. Right now, when I need to make such a link, I have to search google to remember how to do that. Sometimes, I just don't even mind and paste the full URL as http://www.redmine.org/issues/2715#note-42.

Some context from our internal RedMine usage:
- I see full URLs as http://www.redmine.org/issues/2715#note-42 are used
- Some people just use plain words (because they don't know the feature exists?): the message 42 from #2715
- Sometimes, plain words (or a full URL) are really needed, because otherwise people would not understand I have it about a specific message. For example, assume that people already know what #2715 is about. If I say " #2715-42 states that... " then people just won't understand that I'm having it about a specific message. I have to explicitly say "comment 42 from #2715-42 states that...".
