Make it possible for "apply drawlist" of a Configuration to work like "Draw Only"

Make it possible for "apply drawlist" of a Configuration to work like "Draw Only"

If you use configurations a lot at different levels of a big assembly, you run into this issue:  the Drawlist of a given Configuration cannot currently affect the draw status of any object that is not within the scope of the Configuration.

Let's say you have a big assembly loaded and all objects are drawn in the viewport.  There is a certain subassembly with a Configuration (including drawlist information) that you want to focus on, so you either Activate that subassembly's Configuration or right-click on the subassembly's Configuration and pick "Apply Drawlist" -- and you find that all the "other stuff" outside that subassembly is still showing.

What I am hoping for is a way to also have a "Draw Only" mode for "Apply Drawlist" -- so it will draw only what's specified in the subassembly Configuration's drawlist and nothing else.

There might be more than one method to implement such a thing, but I think it would be useful.
