Bitbucket - Issue Number as Separate Field

Is there any way to move the auto-numbering of issues from the Title field into a separate field?

The way it is set up now, makes it impossible to sort like issues together or even to sort numerically (you get 1, 10, 11, 12 ,13...) when you sort by title.

I have used a standard naming process for issues that would allow us to sort issues together so that the programmer addressing them can see all related issues at one time rather than manually searching through the entire list looking for similar ones.

For example, we use "Component - Sub-Component - Issue" when we title an issue.  However, the auto-inserted issue number makes that useless for sorting and forces me to copy all issues to Excel, separate fields and manually sort them.  If I'm going to have to do that...bitbucket loses a lot of its usefulness for us.

So, how do I move the issue number to a separate field?
