Done. Always glad about such hints. It's, however, useful to
have them trickle in at a manageable rate as it is very easy
to flood programming bandwidth with such adjustments.

An otherwise non-programmer contributor who gives thougthful
feedback on such items (unconciously) filtering by impact,
severity and urgency, and attaching good reason is an
invaluable resource to any project !

Yes, but

- intended for the next iteration
- intended to live in two lines just *above* the grid
  - one line "filters: [] ... [] ... [] ..."
  - one line "sorters: () ... () ... () ..."
  - perhaps the sorters should be a combobox selector
    in Richards toolbar
  - probably not so for filters as they can be combined
    and thus need more screen space
- would apply to all test results, not just the visible ones

I am fine with that if people agree.

I am now displaying items if there's up to then. Otherwise
it informs "too many to display individually". The message
above now says "... ALL results currently selected in the
viewer ..."
