This is a nice idea - issues marked dupes can be easily lost when one isn't 
looking hard enough... ;)

I posted a feature here [1] which is along similar lines. Sometimes a new 
issue (appearing in the tracker, at the top of recent lists, feeds etc) will 
be marked as a duplicate of a long-standing, old issue sitting near the 
bottom of the queue. The new one is 'lost' in issue lists, and the old one 
isn't easily found/linked to. The idea in [1] was to somehow 'bump' the old 
issue with an automated message:

  This issue has been reported in duplicate issue [.../node/n]

or something. This would probably need an additional dupe URL/nid field as Ian
