Hm ... this question has been asked before, maybe it should be included in
the FAQ?  At least it is in some docs there.

Last is the last action ... regardless of whether it's from or to the
requestor, or if it's a comment.

Told is last time we touched the user somehow.  There is a link to update
this from RT that should be used when communication is done outside RT.

This is the secound request for this feature in a short time now.  It
sounds like a nice feature to me.  Anyway, we have to priority a stable
and usable 2.0 release as for now.
