 Thanks for the thoughful response, imath.

 Agreed. This would be useful for many reasons. I'm going to add it

 I'm wary of adding this kind of filter without first thinking about an
 overall filtering strategy for all components with the rest of the team.
 Since you can modify `$groups_template` directly, please go ahead and use
 this technique for now.

 specific template tag reason why the patch has included one

 Could you please submit a patch with just this feature? It shouldn't be a
 problem to add it.

 Once these changes are in place, I'm leaning toward closing this ticket as
 wontfix for now. I encourage you to build the feature as a plugin, and put
 it out there to see if people use it and love it. I agree that the most
 elegant place to do stickies is in core, but I don't want to take on the
 extra baggage if we don't have good reason to believe that many people
 will use it. If it turns out that your plugin is wildly popular, we can
 reopen this ticket and reconsider. Does that sound reasonable?
