I think we need a plan/wishlist item to somehow "harmonize" the "Views" idiom of
the Chooser too.  It seems to me we really only have two "views" in a
presentation sense: Tree and List.  The bulk of what we now consider "views"
seems to me to be idiomatically more akin to filters applied to the List view.
So thinking out loud, I wonder if it wouldn't make sense to have a "Tree/List"
mutually-exclusive selection and a separate "Filters:
All/OnlyUpdates/Ignore/This/That/TheOther/Etc/Etc/Etc" 'checkboxy' selection
where maybe you can choose more than one filter or something.

BTW: I'm pretty much just sitting on the fixed Bigger Chooser patch, keeping it
synched to HEAD, until the new setup is released.  I'm assuming that's best for
everybody right?  Just so you didn't think that I'd forgotten about it...  that
I'd be able to forget about it... ;-)
