Can you explain the difference between fully-mutual and dual-one-way?

My design included both "asymmetrical" relationships like depends
on/blocks and "symmetrical" relationships like "related" or "see also".
Is that the difference you are referring to?

I really think it does not improve the problem of Bugzilla's complexity
to have a different UI for

- relating bugs to other bugs in the same Bugzilla in one particular way
(depends on/blocks)
- relating bugs to other bugs in the same Bugzilla in other ways (custom
fields taking Bug IDs)
- relating bugs to other bugs in other bug systems (See Also)
