Me too. :-)

Cool.  However I think the dependency pattern would be typically a bit
different -- the dependencies are declared in the dependent problems
(e.g. your PR can depend on a PR which you're not allowed to modify).
So a different idea might be to introduce computed field values.  The
facility to cross-refer PRs is needed anyway.

Free software is about freedom, not about free beer.  If you care only about
the latter, you'll end up with no freedom and no free beer.
