What an awesome feature!
I have not seen this anywhere else. In reddit, for instance, I often visit specific subreddits to make sure I didn't miss anything because my front page is overflowed with posts from the more popular communities.
This will certainly make it easier to have a granular control over that behavior. Great ideas!
