Thanks for the pointer -- although experimenting with custom skip
functions did not solve my problem, by reading Bernt's document I
discovered speed keys :)

It turned out the culprit was `org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks', which I
had set to 'invisible soon after I started using Org-mode. Setting that
to nil in the "Settings for the entire command set" of the block agenda
view does what I want.

And now that I know about custom skip functions, I can move stuck
projects to their own section in the project list.
