Do I get it right that you want several lists w. unassigned/assigned/fixed for 
different tasks, where bugs on malone can switch the state and that these 
lists could be prefilled by some mechanism?

If so, I guess it would take me several hours to change the workload-list 
(formerly known as merge-list) to handle this.

The bad thing is, that I'm currently drowned in work (btw.: just if anyone 
wondered, that's the reason I'm not on irc lately, hope this will get better 
soon.) and so I can't really promise to start working on it soon :(.

Maybe someone else would like to jump in here?

Btw.: We should also check out, if LP itself can be abused to exactly provide 
this functionality yet: I once asked on lp-users about such a functionality 
(see [0]). From the answer [1], I guess that there might be something planned 
(or is even working already), though I actually don't know if it's possible 
yet to file a bug with multiple tasks.

Cheers and keep on rocking,
