	This is actually a sore point with me, the state of bundles.  As far as I'm 
concerned, they still need some loving.  I want them to be as fast and easy 
to use as groups, but allow cross context should you wish.  Just making them 
cross-contexual but requiring a lot more clicking and fiddling to get right 
doesn't make them a replacement(which I suspect is why groups are still there 
and exposed).

	I would like to be able to Shift-G(or whatever) and have a single context 
bundle created by default, in a special low cost tab that doesn't require 
filter management, etc.  Basically, please just make them work like groups.  
If I want the extra features like cross context or 'smartness'(ugh), then 
great, allow that, but make it an added benefit, not something to click 

	For the most part, we're all still using groups here for precisely these 
reasons.  They're fast and get the job done.
