When comments posted to this bug tracker are sent as email, some formatting is
necessarily lost because the email is plain text (so, e.g., bold and italic
markup cannot be represented other than how they are entered).  But some
markup is handled intelligently: for instance, the Rich Markup "verbatim"
markers are recognized and handled appropriately.

Of the other items listed under Rich Markup in, I would like to request that those
for numbered lists be converted to numbers in email using the same algorithm
as within savannah.  This list, for example:

0 acquire straw
0 transport straw to hideout
0 spin straw into gold

renders in a meaningful way when viewed in savannah but is less useful in
email, especially if further text refers to the numbers to identify list

This seems like a straightforward transformation, so I hope it can be
implemented fairly easily.  Thanks for considering this.
