+1. One bug for one issue (even if it exists in more than one release) is
quite sufficient. And helps to keep the buglist short.

OTOH, if you want us (the package maintainers) to follow the rule of ones,
please provide easy tools to do that. For example: one click "clone for
release X" button and the ability to sort the bugs on bugzilla frontpage by
Fedora release.

I'm sure there are more ways to make this easier. Otherwise I strongly object
to this unannounced change in bodhi behaviour.
