Since more hands are touching trac, it makes some sense to drop the bg|
prefix to something more easily understood.  "bg|" stood for "Bug
Gardener", and was a token used by us to quickly put some sense to the
jungle of tickets.  The notion of "bug gardener" has diminished
somewhat, with the influx of trac participation, so removing that prefix
seems to make some sense.

But hey, if the majority wants to keep it, I won't care.
