Hrm, problem - wanting to have something other than bog-standard
id-from-Tickets-table.  It happens often enough, and why not allow free
text as the identifier.  It'd be easy enough to change the identifier
given to requestors/Ccs, and the inputs shown on the web.

Apart from upping the auto_inc value on the table each night, what other
solutions have people come up with?
