While it's possible to change BriefDescription in RT::Transaction to
do that (or even to use the ModifyDisplay callback to add it in later)
the problem is that the transaction description is passed through
Mason's HTML escaper, and the link wouldn't work.  We could turn that
off, but it would require effort to ensure that no security bugs
(displaying user entered info unescaped) are added.
