How can I create a filter using days in column?

The Greenhopper cards show how many days the card has been in its current column. I would like to create a filter that show all issues that have been in a column for more than 5 days. It seems this would be possible since the cards show the data I would need to calculate on.

The business reason behind this is to create a focused list for a weekly management meeting to review "exception" issues that might need some management attention. This would be easier than hovering over every card in a complex board with a large number of cards.

There does not appear to be a good way to accomplish this.

There is one solution, but you have to define it for every column: 


status = "In Progress" AND status changed to "In Progress" before "-5d" 

Oh, you can even do it generally for all columns:


status CHANGED BEFORE "-5d"

Status changed before -5d and not status changed after -5d

You might consider using the 'Updated Date' field to your advantage. See the screenshot below. Bear in mind that comments to issues change the updated date.

+1 I need a daily standup meeting dashboard to quickly look and see who's on what during the sprint. I want to drive that discussion by showing any cards that are sitting in a column for more than some number of days. That data has to be in 

+1 Agreed.  It would be super helpful to be able to setup a quick filter that showed tickets that have spent a long time in a column.  I like the dots along the bottom, but it's hard to quickly scroll through larger boards and see which are the aging ones.
