 Replying to [comment:3 gjm]:

 mean that we need to decide whether we have an appropriate means of
 distinguishing the most important tickets while they are not in priority
 order.

 I believe we should look for a better indicator than colour - especially
 as the number of distinct colours needed grows it becomes difficult to
 differentiate between them and remember the meaning. Let's not forget the
 significant share of population with colour blindness too. There's also a
 risk of highlighting very prominently something which may not be the focus
 of the user at all at that moment.

 My suggestion is using alignment of the text in the priority column - high
 priority aligned to the left, lower levels to the right. We may also want
 to consider using priority as a secondary sorting method by default when
 it is not the primary one.
