Good info, thanks.

So that means to have a "My Requests" widget on the "RT At A Glance"  
page, I'll have to find where the hack to turn __CurrentUser__ into  
the username happens, and make it happen for my widget as well.

Seems like what I want to do should be really easy. Display a widget  
that shows what the self service interface would show.
