svn plugin: is there a way to have it ignore a specific issue in commit message

We have a team who wants to move to Jira from Bugzilla but has the following concern with the Subversion plugin. If the commit message includes a string that happens to be an issue, there are times they don't want that svn commit to be linked to the issue; for instance the commit message could be something like "Ignore <JiraIssue>" but that issue really has no relation to the code checked in. I really don't know how often this happens and I don't have a clue as to whether Bugzilla handles this, but they've identified this as a big deal for them. So is there anyway to have the plugin ignore valid issues in that string?

The Atlassian Subversion plugin.

I am not aware of anything that can be done except type the issue identifier differently or modify the code itself since it is available.

Are you using fisheye, the subversion plugin or the new subversion plus plugin or something else?

As a workaround, why don't you use a syntax that is not picked by the Subversion plugin?

For instance, instead of "Bugfix, but Ignore FOO-123", just write "FOO_123 Bugfix", and this will be basically ignored, although human readable.
