Comment #2 on issue 2456 by RB API doesn't allow updating changenum field for Git

Thanks for your quick response! Yes, I understand RB currently only supports change number if the backend SCM supports such concept natively. But wouldn't it be nice if the web service API provides the ability to update the field? Right now that field always shows 'None' if the underlying SCM is not Perforce. As an administrator/developer/user, I'd like to be able to "overload" that field to do meaningful task, such as use it to store the commit SHA1 string associated with the change, rather than be wasted? From there, I can do a lot more work build on top of it...

Would you consider providing such functionality in the API? I mean people who use the API probably know what they are doing, isn't it?
