Subtask blocking support in Gantt?

Does Gantt Chart support automatic recognition of subtasks blocking a main issue, and setting dependencies accordingly (or anything similar)? We are looking into deploying it in an issue-heavy enviroment with a lot of issues repeating again and again, so it would be useful if we could automatise linking on issue creration.

Any workflow function for blocking other issues will not be taken into account.

But Sub-Issue handling: an issue and specify a planned start date (end date is not necessary nor estimation of effort, here). This issue will not be displayed on the Gantt-Chart, yet. Then create a sub-issue including an original estimated effort but without any planning dates: it will be scheduled automatically and the planning dates of the parent will be adjusted resulting in being all together displayed on the Gantt-Chart. You can create other sub-issues in the same way. The sub-issues will be treated as being linked by a finish-start dependency implicitely. So, they are building a sequence per assignee. Having different assignees, the related sub-issues will be scheduled in parallel sequences. Re-assignment will force an automatic re-scheduling. This functionality shall reduce a lot of manual efforts while entering and planning (sub-)tasks!
