Within the project settings, it would be a useful idea to be able to specify a project code. For example, if I have
a project which is called "Apples Bananas Carrots", I might choose my project code to be "ABC" (obviously
doesn't have to be limited to 3 chars, but the shorter the better). This project code would then be used in the issue
ID. So the first issue ID for that project would be "ABC-1". This way, each project can have a set of issues
starting from 1 with their unique project code prepended to the front.

This is not essential, but is useful for tracking when you have a number of large projects.
