This should be possible with a smart cvs script that calls some whups
functions by rpc. The PHP folks for example use some special format for
their commmit messages where some parts of the message get extracted
automatically inserted into the changelog and the NEWS file.
You can create a similar script that calls a modified version of
scripts/rpctest.php that calls the correct whups api method to change a
tickets state based on what you wrote in your commit message.
