I just tested this in Landfill, it doesn't seem to be a problem -
bugzilla displays the alias, not the bug number, in the Blocks: field
but it actually *uses* the bug number. So if you mark Bug #100 as
blocking AlphaBlocker (the alias of Bug #1), then transfer that alias
from Bug #1 to Bug #2, Bug #100 continues to block Bug #1, not Bug #2.
So that's fine.
