But after defining the worklist for one of my content types, I am unable to find such a function/method/call.

I have extended DCWorkflow such that worklists provide
a "search" method.

I am not sure, however, whether you should use this extension.

  For each new DCWorkflow release, I costs me about 10 to 15 minutes
  before the extension works again...

The alternative:

  Worklists are essentially catalog queries.

  While is is very nice to define the query just once (that has
  been my reason for the extension) and use it for both
  action and overview, it is feasible to do it twice...
