automatically link duplicates

When marking a ticket as duplicate of another, I'd find it neat if the referenced Ticked would automatically receive an update in terms of a backlink to the duplicate.
Sometimes multiple tickets describe an issue in differnt ways, have collected annotations, etc. I've noticed the request for merging tickets here, but for me it would be sufficient, if the chosen "original" could somehow backlink to duplicates automatically.
A comment like "#1234 has been marked duplicate of this ticket" or an option to list all duplicates would do, I think.
This way, a developer taking on an issue could easily browse through all the "written-down thoughts" on the issue, and there is no need to copy-and-paste comments or even touch two tickets just because one of them is a duplicate of the other.
Hope you get my point… it's late :-)
