Bug#286792: allow bugs to be forcibly merged with different severities/tags

Package: debbugs
Severity: wishlist

I propose a forcemerge command (or some better synonym) that would
merge bugs, using the first bug listed as a template for the changes
to be applied to the other bugs.

IE, if 1 and 2 were bugs with severity serious and important,
respectively, you could go:

forcemerge 1 2

instead of

severity 2 serious
merge 1 2

The converse would be:

forcemerge 2 1

instead of

severity 1 important
merge 1 2

[This would just help maintainers easily merge bugs without having to
worry about whatever random severity a submitter thought was
important, while keeping the traditional behavior for merge so
maintainers aren't caught unawares.]
