Workspace component providing the top of each ConversationStack

                 Key: JBSEAM-1983
                 URL: http://jira.jboss.com/jira/browse/JBSEAM-1983
             Project: JBoss Seam
          Issue Type: Feature Request
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0.CR1
            Reporter: Jacob Orshalick
            Priority: Minor

I have been using the conversationList component provided by Seam to allow switching between conversations. Currently, the conversationList contains all ConversationEntry instances. This seems to be unintuitive to users when working within nested conversations (especially when nested 3 or 4 conversations deep).

Each time a conversation is nested, the parent as well as the child are contained in the workspace entries. As you can imagine, if nesting continues, the number of workspaces grows quickly. It also seems that the ConversationStack already handles a representation of nested conversations through breadcrumbs.

In order to avoid this issue, I have implemented a workspace component which provides the top of each ConversationStack the user is working with. I then use breadcrumbs to represent nesting and allow traversal through nested conversations which seems intuitive to the users.

If it would help I can submit the workspace component as a patch.
