It would be nice if when marking a bug as a duplicate of another bug,
this other bug also gets a note like "Bug xxxx was marked as a duplicate of this bug". This in addition with automatic hyperlinking to other bug IDs would
greatly enhance the usability of the bug DB.

Maybe this can be resolved by adding a new field "Mark as duplicate of |____|"?

How to repeat:
Try marking bugs as duplicate and find these duplicates from the original bug

References like Bug #1234 in comments are now automatically linked. Not quite all that is requested, but likely as close as we're going to get.
