Ability to merge tasks

(closed account) says:
In addition to nesting tasks, combining existing tasks might be usefull to.

Sometimes I get multiple mails about the same problem or issue. I create a task for each of them to keep track of whom I need to inform. Combining these tasks into one task would make things clearer.

Off course this implies to show a list of mails instead of one mail when clicking on the mail-icon in the gmail-addon or another solution to make this userfriendly.

This would be handy. Would it just combine the note collection and append a new note detailing the header information of the two tasks that were merged? Which task would become the new task's header information?

I've been trying to find if there is a way to make tasks dependent on each other in RTM. e.g. A->B means you must finish task A to do task B.

If that is possible, I'd just make all the multiple tasks prerequisites for the completion task for this set.

Another use case for being able to merge tasks: I had one task start out as a manually added task and then created a task with an Evernote reminder along the same topic. I want the Evernote link, plus the notes from the original task. Couldn't merge them, so I just copied the notes from one task to the one linked with Evernote. That was tedious but did the trick. A merge tasks option would be brilliant!

It would be cool to merge tasks. Perhaps one task evolves and actually aligns with another task, but both tasks have multiple notes, subtasks, etc. Instead of re-entering them all, it would be cool to be able to merge one task into the other, and choose to keep all notes, some notes, sub-tasks, etc. so you don't loose the details

This would be a great feature. I frequently forward emails to my RTM account and sometimes separate tasks are related, but the email subject lines are different - so different tasks get created. It would be great to be able to merge those tasks together.
