A new feature request for Textpattern?

Having been doing some updates to articles in A Wanderer’s Miscellany, an idea that makes life easier when working in Textpattern with old articles has come to mind. Currently, there is no way to navigate through pages in the administration area other than using the search or previous/next functionality. I have gotten to thinking that being able to subset articles by section or category using drop down menus would be a good way forward. A search for a suitable plugin was set in train but it yielded nothing of immediate use (amazingly, no one has given it a go thus far), hence the thinking regarding a new feature request. There is a place on the Txp support forum for exactly this kind of thing and I am in the throes of plucking up the courage to go for it. Apparently, some code cutting of my own would grease the wheels for the progression of any such thing but I remain unsure as to how far I want to go down that route so a bare request might be what they get. Moving to an alternative platform might be an alternative proposition but I see little reason in doing so when what I have otherwise works well for what I want it to do. That Textpattern feature request might just come into being…
