Is it possible to limit Special:Makesysop so that when users are made sysops they are automatically also made bureaucrats? After a good discussion at iswiki there was a vote on wether we should joining the two user statuses. The votes were 14 to none and can be found under "Gera alla stjórnendur að möppudýrum" at http://is.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Möppudýr/Kosningar
Obviously not as a global thing, no. To be honest, this is very easily doable with another configuration global (check the box automatically), but I'd say it's probably better to remember to explicitly check the box.
If you're asking for the two groups to be effectively merged for that wiki, then you probably need to consider this as part of a wider discussion, and it's a separate issue.
It seems to me that these lines in LocalSettings.php would probably suffice (combined with deleting all bureaucrat rows from user_groups):
$wgGroupPermissions = array_diff_assoc( $wgGroupPermissions, array( 'bureaucrat' => null ) );
$wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['makesysop'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['renameuser'] = true;
Maybe I missed a couple of bureaucrat-only things. Anyway, for the time being just promote them together, I guess.

This is the current config:
'iswiki' => array(
'sysop' => array(
'makesysop' => true,
'renameuser' => true,
'makebot' => true,
