Ability to merge questions and answers?

If someone asks a question which has already been answered or this question is related to another one, I would like to have the ability to merge them. This is different from just closing as duplicate because, both questions should redirect to the same page and the answers should be appended and treated as one question.

I strongly agree, this feature is a must.

I see the feature is now available in the latest askbot version. Can I request that the "merge" button take us directly to an edit window so that we can clean up the resultant question before it's posted?
