Well, at least in one direction it works: 'Solution: DUPLICATE of bug
xxx', but it would be nice to have a list: 'Bugs marked as duplicate: ...
(show buglist)'.
But for the bug which is marked as duplicate, a box containing
  [ This bug has been marked a duplicate of bug xxx (current title) ]
followed by the comments why, or having such a box for attachments
would still be nice.

Hmm, if we manage to get this working well and easily maintainable with
custom resultions/status, why not.
