/me wonders if "Merge Request:" would be a better tag, but at least for
now settles on 'it's nice, as it's close to what people are used from
git forges, but OTOH it somehow feels wrong'

Is that really worth it? Isn't it sufficient if the commit links to the
last public review posting, as that already should link to all earlier
review postings. Sure, not everybody is doing this right now, but maybe
just educating people to do so is better than creating something new.
