[Zope-CMF] getting the items that a dcworkflow worklist define

I'm currently in the process of building a suite of mini workflow-based applications on top of zope cmf, where this entire suite would exist within one cmf site.

I'll be building approximately 30 content types and will have different workflows associated with each (so 30 workflows also). 

My intent was to build approx 1 worklist per workflow, that would signify that something is needing to be done with the particular content type that the worklist pertains to.

I was expecting that there was some kind of call I could make that would give me back a list of items that match a (or all) worklist's requirements back from the portal_workflow so that I could present this list back to the user as a type of "My Tasks" screen.  But after defining the worklist for one of my content types, I am unable to find such a function/method/call.

Am I doing something fundamentally wrong?  The docs for why and when worklists should be used (and dcworkflow itself, for that matter) are nearly (completely?) non-existent.
