Create New Issue from Comment on GitHub

I have a project on GitHub. Sometimes it happens that a user is making a comment on an existing issue, that really should have been a new issue.

When this happens I would like to be able to right click on the comment and say “Create new issue from comment”. A new issue should then be created. The new issue should say Opened by the person that created the comment, and with the original timestamp (from the comment).

Are there any plans for a feature like this?
