Can I show story point totals for filters in a JIRA dashboard?

I am using a number of filter results gadgets in a dashboard to drive my team's work. It is important to understand the number of issues (stories) in their queues. But more important is to understand the total number of *story points* in their queues. Are there any gadgets that can display total story points for a given filter?

I'm using OnDemand JIRA and Greenhopper.

The closest that you can do is to use the "Greenhopper Statistics Burndown Chart", select Story Points and the context for the team. Of course this means you need to have one context per team (I guess this should be there already if you are using Task board for daily scrum).

This only works for one project at a time, and even then it seems to require that you create versions (which we're not using).

All I want to be able to do is see the total size of the backlog (in story points), ideally across proejcts, so that we can see how much work is stacked up and do some capacity planning. Surely this is what jira/agile is supposed to give us?
