Aargh. I smell scope creep :-)

That's a good idea.

At the moment, we have an option which says "blockers prevent a bug
being resolved". That would probably change to a system where you could
identify a particular relationship as having this property. So "blocks"
and "documents-changes-introduced-by" would have the property, and
"is-a-root-cause-of" would not.
