Add the ability to create a linked issue.
This would be functionailty similar to 'Create a Sub-task' but for any arbitrary link type, for example 'Duplicate'.
For example when viewing issue A, you could click 'create linked issue' and it would send you to the create form - with an additional select box for the link type. The form could be prefilled with data from the original issue (ie project, component, versions etc).
