Usage:
1- Select the objects you want to unwrap and click on 'unwrap UV's' : edit them.
2- When it's done click 'set UV's' ( don't forget ! ).

Known limitations:

- copied from : copy this channel as starting point (optional).
- don't use Channel Info : don't use the Channel Info interface for the copy.
- use previous unwrap: reuse the last 'Unwrap' modifier when It's possible.
- convert to polys: converts the objects to editable poly. No undo available.
