Right, I guess I never really had that issue as I generally want to be
in a certain "mode" when I'm looking through issues.

GitHub makes that really simple since I only get notifications on
issues I'm involved in -- ones where I either commented or posted
myself -- and then I can go look at the issues relevant to the library
I'm working on from that library's issue tracker.

I think this is also the reason why I don't like the Trac approach
where all the issues just get piled up in the same container and you
have to filter it out actively.

Maybe it's just the way I work that's different from everyone else's
preferred way of working on things?
