RQT Service Caller in a namespace

Is there a way to invoke the rqt_service_caller allowing to call a subset of the exsisting services?

For example, could I limit the services that can be called to a specific namespace? I have tried invoking rqt_service_caller within a namespace of my launchfile, but all the services are available. The list of the services is long, and this makes the use of the interface a little unpractical.

I had the same wish recently and couldn't find such functionality, neither in the command line help nor when briefly checking out the code.

My current, somewhat unsatisfactory workaround is to remap the name of the service I am interested in, so it appears first in the alphabetically ordered dropdown menu.

I've now opened an issue to request this.
