The Git way to record the issue ID as a footer in the commit message.
See for example [1].  Although I'm not aware of any standard for naming
this footer.

In terms of recording the URL and other data, I think you'd want a
dotfile in the repository (perhaps .bugzilla).  This shoudld probably be
in the gitconfig format, like .gitmodules.

I think "all" it needs is to draw up a spec for the names of keys and
format of their values, along with the format of footer(s) identifying
issues associated with a commit and to persuade UI developers to support
it... ;-)
