The problem is doing it right, so it only propagates useful information,
without too much bloat.  When I e.g. see what kind of bloat push Debian
bugtrackers into upstream bugzillas, the useful information there is
hidden in tons of email headers for every comment, tons of previous
comments
duplicated (many times; reply to with stuff not being trimmed to a minimum,
reply to reply to reply to reply), etc.
So perhaps better is just to add to the upstream bz a link to the
downstream
bugzilla, with optional comment or something, not duplicating everything
from the downstream bugzilla.
