What do you think of "active work item" functionality?

What I'd really like to see in the RTC Eclipse client is the ability to "narrow focus" to the "active work item".

I often use the "Set as Current Work Item" feature in order to associate all the changes I make in my workspace to the same work item.  The project I work on most has about two dozen components so it helps to narrow the focus to those that I'm "actively" working on.

An existing Eclipse functionality using Mylyn is the ability to focus on the active task.  This narrows the context of your work to show only the files that have been working on with the active task.

It would be great if RTC offered the same functionality with work items.  I couldn't find that as an existing feature nor could I find an RFE for it.  Does anyone know of a way to do this or have any comments?

p.s.  on a related sidenote, does anyone know of a way within the UI to deliver all of a particular workitem across all components at once?  In the command line, this can be done by lscm deliver -s "workspace name" -W <workitem> but I'm not sure if the UI has an equivalent.  I found the "locate changesets" but it doesn't allow you to deliver from the provided context menu.

I use the Mywork view to focus on the tasks that are important to me.

I recently came upon the My Work view -- it's awesome.  However, it doesn't provide actual mylyn-like "active task" focus.

Thanks for the links - I added RFE 77955.
