Feature request - Search for duplicates before creating new case

It would be great if, before creating a new case, FogBugz would search open cases for the project and suggest possible duplicate cases, based on keywords in the title and content of the new case submission.

Right now, developers do not search for existing cases, because it's one more step that is not integrated into their work-flow (it's not trivial for them to do or remember to do).

Differences between bugs can be very subtle.  The false-positive rate on this might make it more work than smartly searching for the duplicate.  Nevertheless, I'll log it as a feature request.

> smartly searching for the duplicate

Well, the smarter you can make the software (FogBugz), the better ;)
