A different take on multiple contexts:

I don't want to put one item in multiple contexts (well, that would be kinda nice, but not high on my list). What I really want is to be able to "put myself" in multiple contexts.

When I'm at work I have available context "@work", "@internet", and "@anywhere" and I'd like to see all the items from those 3 contexts.

At home of course I have "@home", "@internet", ...

It doesn't seem to be possible to do this now, but I'd love to make this a feature request.

Possible satisfactory implementations might include:
* Ideal: Some kind of context hierarchy -- even if it's only 1 level deep (i.e. a meta-context)
* Be able to multi-select context in filter in various views

You can do this using the Search option. I have a custom search that is titled "Not Personal" and shows all details from all my other folders --- it omits my personal folder. You can do exactly the same with Contexts.

See this for details ...
