which I queried the posts I wanted, then faked the global `$current_screen`
object to match the one in `wp-admin/edit.php`, and then simply included
`wp-admin/edit-post-rows.php`. This has unfortunately stopped working in WP
3.1, though — as perhaps such a bodged solution was always destined to to!

that I could just link to `wp-admin/edit.php?meta_key=foo&meta_value=bar`),
but that doesn't seem to be possible. Google doesn't turn up anything, but I
might just be failing at search terms. Does anyone have any ideas?

certain admin pages, but it seemed overly general and unnecessary — perhaps
it's the only solution, though.
