I wonder if you could shake them through a colander or strainer with holes of appropriate size and differentially sort them. Or am I just geeking out over here?

The heat level varies, and some can be quite mild, but even the hottest has a sweetness behind it that most of your run of the mill crushed red pepper flakes do not. Some brands come in different grades of heat. It's really uncommon to find any Korean flakes or powder with seeds, the kind I get from my mom never has it.
