Having looked at it, is that quite the same thing?

An important part of the way the UI works for the feature I was
suggesting, is that you don't have separate UI for dependson, blocks and
any other relationships you want - it's a single unified UI. This would
imply a database representation like the following:

bug_id   relationship     target
123456   7                125632
563354   4                http://foo.com/bug/64564

rel_id   forwards   backwards     commutative
4        "blocks"   "depends_on"  FALSE

Or something like that. Is that's what's envisaged?

Or, to put it another way, can you generically implement my UI on top of
the system proposed in 251556?

I'm still hoping you'll reply to my query about this :-)
