I don't know of one, but it sounds like a useful tool!

What I do is keep my 'todo' stuff in an .org file using remember
mode. This is quite useful as you get all the benefits of org mode (now
bundled with emacs 22) and using remember mode means you have links to
the document the todo refers to. The only downside is that the todo is
not actually in the file it is associated with (though you might be able
to make remember mode do this with some hacking).

Org mode provides some useful reporting tools that may provide the
sorting/presentation aspects you would like.
