GnomeWorks TradeSkill Frame

394 - GnomeWorks show / toggle queue pane only

It would be very nice to have an official "/gw show queue" command (akin to the existing "/gw show inscription" one) which shows only the queue pane, and not the tradeskill pane.  I find that often when I open GnomeWorks, it's not to queue something new, but to view stuff I've already queued.  The delay caused by refreshing the entire tradeskill list makes it desirable that one could open only the queue window.

I've been able to do it myself using the following macro:

/run local t = { UIParent:GetChildren() }; for _,w in ipairs(t) do if w:GetName() == 'GnomeWorksQueueFrame' then if w:IsVisible() then w:Hide() else GnomeWorks:ShowQueueList() end end end

I find it's such an awesome macro, I've bound it to a key. =)  Obviously, though, official support for this functionality via some "/gw show queue" command would be preferable.

It would also be highly desirable to be able to switch which character's queue you're viewing directly from the queue pane (i.e. by clicking the "Darthyl Queue" text), instead of having to select a specific profession from the tradeskill one.

Also, it may be helpful to be able to, in the command, specify which character you want to view the queue for, such as:
/gw show queue (shows / hides Darthyl's queue, since he's the character I'm playing)
/gw show queue Tiertrus (shows / hides Tiertrus's queue, since he's my alt)

(alternatively, you could make it "/gw queue" if "show" doesn't feel right.  "Toggle show / hide" functionality is much preferred to "show only" so that key bindings can be used.)
