to this excellent list i would like to add:
- the ability to manually subscribe/unsubscribe to/from an issue.   
the 'my issues' queue would be much friendlier if this level of  
intelligence was added. my 'my issues' screen currently has about 5  
pages, maybe 3 of which contain issues where i left a passing  
comment, and am no longer focusing on.
- somebody mentioned it before, but let's make sure it's counted: a  
way to perform some mass operations on the results of the search  
page. like mass changing the status of issues, or mass assigning/ 
- this may be reaching a little, but AJAX teasers for issues?

i think the above would help to make the search results pages operate  
more like a 'command center' for patch reviews.
