First, to say that I am excited about your plugin and want to begin using this right away. I have just one immediate problem with this feature:
"A new column is added to the Edit Posts screen and the ability to filter by status"
Unfortunately, while I really welcome the addition of the the new column for filtering by status, your plugin has removed a modification that one of my other plugins has made - to add the much-missed "post id":
I use this extensively to reference specific posts when I am creating feature mash-ups in various hub pages of my site. Without it, there is a lot of extra work to dig out the post ids.
Is there any easy way for me to adjust the configuration so that your new column is added but not at the expense of my precious "ID" column?
