For example, there are issues I'd like to look into but I'm currently
busy on another thing. I'd like to organize a sort of prioritized list
of bugs I can work on in JIRA. It's not convenient to search by plain
comments - I'll need to invent a fixed comment to search by it in
future. Sometime I use a watcher field for this, but there are other
issues I'd like to watch.

I agree that the list works well in many cases. It does not work if a
developer reads dev-list irregularly or the issue needs claridication
and better to be discussed in a chat room.
