How to deduct inventory from a self-made group.

I’m re-posting this because I realized my last attempt had an unclear title.

If I want to sell three of the same item (not a bundle or a group in the Magento sense) but I just want the product to be sold in sets of quantity 3. However, I also sell them alone (qty 1) and I keep stock in units of 1 so every time I sell a set of three I have to manually adjust my inventory.

What I mean is that I only want to only keep track of the inventory for one master SKU that are in units of 1. Do you think it would be a good idea for Magento to add a field in the product set-up area under inventory that says “quantity and SKU to be deducted from inventory per unit sold”.
