Reindexing a smart commit doesn't update previous write actions

A JIRA issue number was included in the middle of a Fisheye smart commit like this:

  JIRA-123 #comment Merging JIRA-123 branch back into trunk

The JIRA comment ended up being "Merging" and it cut off everything after the JIRA key.  I edited the commit message and re-wrote it as:

  JIRA-123 #comment Merging branch back into trunk

Then I reindexed that one commit number.  I was expecting it to update Fisheye and modify the JIRA comment.  However, nothing happened to the JIRA comment. 

Is this expected behavior?

Hi Tini,

I'd say it's expected. We don't reprocess smart commits when doing reindexing of any kind.

This is in order to avoid duplicating any actions that shouldn't be repeated (like transitions, comments but also creating reviews).

It would be awesome if: (a) smart commits could handle JIRA keys in mid-comment, possibly through an escape character (a backslash would probably work) and (b) if there was a way when reindexing in JIRA to check a box to also reprocess a smart commit. I think the first would be very universally useful, although the second is pretty specialized.
