When checking in some files (in Hg), can we force a particular commit message?

In our project, all of our commit messages must start with "Bugs: " followed by a comma separated list of bug #s. I want to ensure that this isn't forgotten. Can we
a) force a commit message to be entered,
b) force a particular format for this message?

Hi Mark,

at the moment such functionality is not supported.
A feature request in the issue tracker (http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/dashboard/IDEA#newissue=yes) is welcome.

Thanks Kirill, I submitted one: http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/WI-8439

Low priority feature, but it would be nice to have. I'm evaluating this software for our company to see if it's a good fit :)
