That's an excellent idea :)
Should we also allow for limiting by other stuff too, i.e. like the
'l' command in the mail/mutt mailer accepts a 'limit pattern' with a
Limiting by PID
~p minpid-maxpid only show pids in [minpid...maxpid]
~p <maxpid only show pids less than maxpid
~p >minpid only show pids greater than minpid
Limiting by username or user ID
~u username only show processes of user `username'
~U uid only show processes of user uid
~U uidmin-uidmax only show processes of users minuid-maxuid
Limiting by number of threads
~t minthr-maxthr only show processes with minthr-maxthr threads
~t <maxthr only show processes with less than maxthr threads
~t >minthr only show processes with more than minthr threads
Limiting by priority
~P minpri-maxpri only show processes with minpri-maxpri priority
~P <maxpri only show processes with less than maxpri priority
You get the idea...

If you have a patch to submit, I'm sure we can find people who are
interested in reviewing, testing and committing it.
