Yes it is useful :)

Yes it will need I suppose cooperation from BTS itself but in a second
time. We need only two user tags by foreign distrib:
bts-link-foreign-xref-$distrib set to the foregin bugzilla entry
bts-link-foreign-status-$distrib  magically set by bts-link

In a second time BTS interface could provide link near the forwarded
link with status in other distrib (with a nice icon describing status)

We will need also a means to put in the package describtion link to
other distrib bugzilla, and we ease to remove duplicate entry :)
