It's not possible to filter a post listing screen by post_parent. This would be super handy for hierarchical post types (eg. Pages) where you may have several levels of hierarchy and want to view only the descendants of a particular page. I'm not sure that we need a UI (eg. dropdown menu) for it, but a working URL query var would be great.
I made an attempt at patching this a while ago using the child_of parameter but it got complicated quite quickly, so I'm putting it out there as a feature request in case anyone feels like tackling it.
