Unfortunately, the issue names are not global and not exportable. Ditz
generates them to make commandline use easier, but they're not
guaranteed to be unique across repositories. For example, if you clone
the ditz repo right now, add a bunch of issues, and meanwhile I add my
own issues on my repo, the names will conflict.

Only the 40-byte ids are guaranteed [1] to be unique, and that's why any
public issue information can use the ids but cannot use the names.

What I can do, which I think will help, is make the commandline accept
the issue ids in addition to issue names. I've assigned this issue to


[1] with a high probability, at least
