[Orgmode] merging column view headings across files

Greetings all,

I have column view configured differently in several different org files. In 
some the columns include things like priority and tags, another file has 
columns like blocker and so on. When I do an agenda search for special todo 
keywords (in particular "STALLED") the search returns those dreaded stalled 
projects, which of course include some things from each org file.  If I switch 
to column view, it seems to use the column definitions in place for the first 
thing on the list. So, if a todo.org item is the first thing on the list the 
column headings are those defined in the todo.org file. However, there are 
things from project specific files (where i use the "BLOCKER" property to keep 
track of what's connected to what), and the column view heading for "BLOCKER" 
does not appear.

Anyone have any bright ideas on how I can keep separate column view definitions 
in each org file but have them some how magically combined in column-view look 
at my agenda?
