I don't mind adding a keyword. But I'm not found of the word "meta"  
for this purpose. Something like "IsBugCollection" might be more in  
keeping with our other keywords.

It would be fine to mark a bug that's a collection of other bugs as  
such, but why is a keyword helpful for this? Will we use this keyword  
to create queries?
