When adding Milestones, they should also, optionally, be added as tickets.

Sometimes it would be convenient if milestones could have other milestones as dependencies. Ex. Milestone: Release 1.0 Might have Milestones: Add Major Feature X Update Documentation to reflect version changes Beta Test 1.0 Move to New DB in addition to any other Enhancement/Bug tickets
The easiest way I see to implement this is to have milestones be added as tickets, with a severity of "milestone". The ticket can then, optionally, be assigned a milestone.
So in the above example, I would create Milestone "Beta Test 1.0". A new ticket with severity "milestone" would be created. I could then assign the ticket to the "Release 1.0" milestone.
When calculating the progress of a milestone, you would include the progress of any sub-milestones.
When you marked a milestone as complete, the corresponding ticket would be closed; if you closed the ticket, the milestone would be marked as complete.
