Feature request: more referencing tags (#blocked, #blocking)

My team often builds features that are temporarily blocked by other features. We then use blocked and blocking tags and have the issues reference each other by mentioning them in the PR description. It would be great if we could use something like #blocks 110, which would automatically keep the label blocked on the issue until #110 is merged/closed. Perhaps also an open or merged status could be shown next to the mentioned issue in the PR description.
