Code, and quite a lot of it.

Status is not a trivial "field" with a bit of data in it.  Jira is built on a workflow engine designed to track your process and status is a very important part of that.

A drop-down simply is not good enough.  You would need to think about all the conditions every time somebody clicked it, and then how to "commit" a change, followed by a look at the validators, triggers, post-functions and screens involved.

You could code for all of this.  But it would take a while.
