Why do column constraints for issue count exclude subtasks?

Perhaps I'm using GreenHopper incorrectly, or misunderstanding Kanban, but why does GreenHopper only include "Standard Issues" (no sub-tasks) with column constraints?

I see someone else has a similar query:

Hi David,

Valid question. At the time we figured that folks would want to limit the stories that were WIP while having the flexibility to use sub-tasks as required (and it was easier, technically, to implement this). Kind of weird in hindsight.

On the Rapid Board today you will see all issues included in the issue count for a column. While the Rapid Board is still in Labs we are targeting kanban teams. I would like to invite you and your team to give it a try and provide feedback. More information can be found here.

Thanks David.

Regards,

Nicholas Muldoon

Thanks for the answer Nick. I'll see what I can do to customize our GreenHopper to display subtasks for now. :-)
