Our Bugzilla already supports this. Every bug has an "External Bugs"
section (between the Attachments bit and the bit where you can enter
additional comments). It supports a lot of external sites, including the
biggies - freedesktop, KDE, GNOME, Launchpad, Debian and Novell.

(The status tracking doesn't seem to work with all external sites,
though.)
