If the user has the role of Author or Contributor they'll only be
shown their own posts by default. They see a new 'Mine' tab next to
'Published', 'Draft', etc.

You can mimic this functionality for other roles by using the 'author'
query variable, eg. example.com/wp-admin/edit.php?author=3. Probably
be quite easy to knock up a plugin which adds the 'Mine' link for all
