Yep. It accepts prefixes of any size. If the prefix matches more than
one issue it dies with an error. It's in the repo now if you want to try
it out.

Ditz ships with a deliberately stripped-down issue model (no priorities,
no assignments), but now that the plugin stuff is ready, you can add
your own fields, commands and output. See
for an example. If you want to tweak the output of todo, we'll have to
do a little more work, but everything else is ready.
