Bugzilla already has a lot of task management features, but the ones 
it's got are meant to provide minimum functionality for people who don't 
need the big guns on it.

I'm fairly hesitant to add any more to it directly...  that said, we 
have a lot of good infrastructure in place now to be able to have 3rd 
party plugins/add-on packs that do such things, and I would absolutely 
not hesitate in the least to expand the APIs as needed to make something 
like that work as a plugin.
