Ah, now for that you'ld have to use middle(1) and bottom(1),  Unfortunately
no one has written them yet...

Seriously though: you can run top in an xterm and make the window as tall
as you can bear, you can filter the top output by username, turn the
display of idle processes on or off, sort the output order by any of the
columns shown, or else you can forget top(1) entirely and use ps(1) to
examine the whole process list.
