How about this one: preventing users from filing dupes.

What's the big deal? You know you'll be adding/bumping the package at
some point. Just close the bug when you do so. It's certainly less
work than marking it RESOLVED FIXED once and then DUPLICATE many times
after that.

The point of bugzilla is tracking bugs, not a tool to arbitrate a
pissing contest about who has the least bugs open. If you can't/don't
want to fix a bug that's OK, but it's not a good enough reason to
pretend it never existed.
