enhancedList to accept a StandardSetController argument

Accounts & Contacts

It would be a huge benefit to alot of our clients if the enhancedList visualforce component was more configurable.
The following code snippet illustrates what I would like to be able to do for them:

<apex:page standardController="Account" extensions="AccountEnhancedListExtension">
<apex:enhancedList records="{!accountSetController}" />
<apex:commandButton action="{!doSomethingWithSelected}" value="Do Something" />
public class AccountEnhancedListExtension {
public ApexPages.StandardSetController accountSetController { get; set; }
public AccountEnhancedListExtension(ApexPages.StandardController controller) {
accountSetController = new ApexPages.StandardSetController(Database.getQueryLocator([
NumberOfEmployees > 500]));
public PageReference doSomethingWithSelected() {
List<Account> selected = (List<Account>)accountSetController.getSelected();
for(Account account : selected) {
account.IsDoneSomething__c = true;
update selected;
return Page.another_page;

This would allow the contents of an enhanced list to be programatically defined, while leveraging the power of sorting, records per page and pagination.
It would also hopefully solve another shortcoming of the dataTable/pageBlockTable which is fixed columns. If this idea is implemented it would be great if the columns of the enhanced list are those queried by the query locator
