Better backup visibility possible?

When I choose a VM or Container in the GUI, and click in the Backups option, by default I can only see the backups that have been made in the default backup location (this being the first location ID, sorted alphabetically A>Z>a>z).

I would really like to see all backups stored all at once, no matter which storage location they are in, a bit like you can see subsections showing dumps, templates, ISOs and so on when looking at the "local" storage location .

There's a drop down top right to change which backup location to view, but no option to view all.

Could this be a feature that might be added in a future version of the GUI please?

I would also really like to be able to specify the default backup location that is used when you manually initiate a backup. Currently the only way to do this is to create backup location that maps to the correct place and give it an ID that is guaranteed to come first in the alpha-sorted list.
