[rt-users] How to hightlight open tickets that have been updated by the Requestor?

My group is using RT to keep track of requests created by internal users (ie, employees of my company).  Typical life cycle of a ticket in my group's queue involves several rounds of correspondences between the Requestor and Owner of the Ticket.  Normally, a owner may have half a dozen unresolved tickets in the queue, many of them waiting for Replies from the Requestors in order to determine and take the next appropriate action.
I would like to find a way to highlight those tickets that have received an updated Correspondence on an existing unresolved ticket from the Requestor.  Several possiblilities come to mind:
#1 (kinda weak) - I believe the "Told" timestamp is the last time a Reply has been sent to the Requestor; "LastUpdated" timestamp is the last time when the most recent Reply (or Comment?) by anyone.   Maybe I can do something by comparing these two values...
#2 - create some sort of On Correspondence scrip where it would set (perhaps) a Custom Field to one of two values, depending on the writer is a member of the queue manager ...
anyway, these are vague ideas.  Just wondering if anyone has got a solution already :-)
