Feature request: Generic filters for projects

In looking at the previous filter request the following vaguely related notion occured to me that of generic project filters:

If I wanted to get really clever what I'd like is a set of "generic" filters that I can apply to any project (currently I have several copies of a number of filters that only show bugz for a specific project but are otherwise identical)

A typical example would be my "inbox" filter for dealing with emailed errors - since those from the web applications are often multiple duplicates I need to be able to look at just that project to maximise my chances of tidying up correctly. Since there's more than one inbox I need more than one filter...

What if you just sort by Project first? The you can see the results for that filter in every project on one screen...

I seem to recall you were the one who wrote about the desireability of having programmers focus on just one project at a time (-:

Which is most of the point (given that you're absolutely right) - I have several variations on stuff filtered down to a single project the purpose of most of which is to allow me to focus on completing the tasks for just that project.
