Just to clarify:

- I want all users, pretty much, to have "SeeQueue" just about everywhere
  (openness is good)
- I want the queues visible to a particular user under "X newest unowned 
  tickets" on the home page to be more restricted.
  (clutter is bad)

I am planning on trying to do this with the introduction of an additional 


which can be granted more sparingly, and modifying the widget 

I'm soliciting advice as to whether this is the obvious best way to do 
this or if there's a preferred approach.
