I think that's a really good idea :-).
We could argue that an issue can be "in progress" without a PR associated
yet however for simplicity it makes sense that moving an issue from "to do"
to "in progress" would be triggered by an attached PR.
We could then simplify our "quick filters" (the searches using different
labels and fields) to split issues into buckets without constantly adding
PR yes/no.
